THE re­mains of a Ger­manAmer­i­can who in­vented the first sub­ma­rine able to dive and resur­face by it­self have been ex­humed in Panama.

Julius Kroehl’s re­mains were dug up from a ceme­tery on Thurs­day.

They are to be re­buried along­side US war vet­er­ans near the Panama Canal.

Kroehl built his sub­ma­rine from parts brought from New York to search for pearls off Panama’s Pa­cific coast.

Kroehl, 47, died in 1867. His grave was only re­dis­cov­ered in 2005.
