Chariots found in Red Sea?

June 21, 2003: WND stunned the world with the exclusive story and photographs of what many believe to be chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea.

The discovery could provide clues as to the route the ancient Israelites took as they crossed the sea, according to the Bible.

“I believe I actually sat in an ancient chariot cab,” Peter Elmer of England told WND, referring to his time exploring a submerged item in what he describes as an underwater scrapyard. “Without question, it is most definitely the remains of the Egyptian army.”

Nine years later, in June 2012, WND did a follow-up story about a video of the discovery, claiming what’s on the sea floor is “irrefutable evidence” of God parting the Red Sea as described in the Book of Exodus.
