The News Observer reports that the 72-foot vessel is descending into the sand on Bodie Island. Bodie Island is a part of the Outer Banks, a 200-mile-long stretch of barrier islands between North Carolina and Virginia.

The fishing vessel ran aground 50 yards from shore on March 1 this year, according to a Facebook post from the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The Coast Guard safely removed all crew members via helicopter, it said.

Citing the National Park Service, the News Observer reports that the scallop boat, Ocean Pursuit, is sinking because the high tide is making the sand beneath the vessel soft and malleable.

Earlier this year, photos showed a mysterious shipwreck slowly “disappearing” into Lake Michigan.
