SUB PIONEER EXHUMED
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.
