6. When This Boat Crew Realized What They Were Seeing, It Was Almost Too Late To Escape
The crew of the Maiken was sailing the South Pacific when they spotted an unusual shadow.
A huge amount of pumice stone was floating to the surface of the water. It looked like a beach… in the middle of the ocean.
The crew decided to sail through it, leaving a break in the stone behind them as they went.
The field of pumice was getting even larger as they passed through it. The crew had an uneasy feeling and upped their speed. Once they were a safe distance away, they heard a faint rumbling. Looking back they saw water bubbling from the surface.
The source of the pumice stone was an underwater volcano that was actually erupting at the time! As the smoke cleared, they noticed something strange just at the water’s surface…
It was land! The stunned crew couldn’t believe what they were seeing: It was the actual birth of a new island. It was one of the rarest events imaginable.
