Man's Only Hope (3 of 7)
Series: The Days of Noah
The year was 1927, December 17th. A Navy submarine, the USS S4 was off the coast of Cape Cod, and it was accidentally struck by a Coast Guard destroyer. It caused that submarine to sink to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. But it wasn't in too deep a water where it was. It sunk down 110 feet.
