Can Monsters be Real?
A hidden threat lurks in the waters off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. It’s a 12-foot beast, and it makes man-eating sharks and poisonous jellyfish look like sandbox toys. As thousands of vacationers make their way to the sandy shores of Tybee Island this summer, they should be on the lookout for a monster that shouldn’t be all that tough to spot: a 7, 600-pound bomb, packed with an undisclosed amount of uranium and 400 pounds of explosives.

The B-47 carrying the bomb collided with an F-86 fighter plane sometime after midnight, causing the B-47 to crash land at an air force base outside Savannah — but not before its pilot, Air Force Col. Howard Richardson, dropped the bomb in the water a few miles from the island. The crew survived, and Richardson was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his efforts.
