Scuba diver discovers bizarre donkey statue in Red Sea

By Ben Hooper

Dec. 5 (UPI) -- A scuba diver off the coast of Egypt captured video of a bizarre underwater discovery -- a donkey statue on the floor of the Red Sea.

Vitaly Bazarov said he was scuba diving in the Red Sea last month when he and his comrades came across the donkey statue covered in fish and crustaceans.


The video shows the statue wearing a trilby hat, but the condition of the headgear indicates it has not been underwater for nearly as long as the statue.

The footage shows Bazarov investigate all sides of the donkey and discover a large fish hiding out under the statue's tail.
