  • [music playing]

  • More wood.

  • Post at the bottom.

  • Did you see that rush of water come in down there?

  • Na-uh.

  • No, it's still coming in.

  • Can you see that?

  • No.

  • Walk more over there.

  • I'll grab your belt buckle.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • You can see it squirting up like a geyser.

  • Here, stand where I am.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • It's freaking awesome.

  • Marty, come look at this.

  • NARRATOR: After being alerted to the discovery

  • of a potential flood tunnel in the uplands near Smith's Cove,

  • possibly the same one identified by recent seismic imaging,

  • Marty Lagina joins Craig Tester, Jack Begley, Gary Drayton,

  • and Billy Gerhardt to inspect the site

  • and continue the investigation.

  • The water's squirting up from the bottom.

  • You'll see it in the back corner.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Do we know if it's fresh or salt?

  • Don't know.

  • Can't say that we found the flood tunnel itself.

  • But what I see and hear is a lot of water rushing in.

  • And it appears to be rushing in from the uphole side, in other

  • words, from the landward side.

  • This, to me, is very impressive.

  • The base is giving a little bit.

  • Yeah, and you can see a crack up in through here.

  • Yeah.

  • NARRATOR: Suddenly--

  • Oh, wow.

  • That whole edge is about to go.

  • Oh, man.

  • Yeah, let's go.

  • Yep.

  • This is all getting kind of dangerous.

  • Yeah, this is nutso.

  • That was a big enough piece where

  • that whole bridge could go.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, we're getting out of here.

  • It's not worth it.

  • NARRATOR: Unfortunately, for the team,

  • the flood tunnel did what it was designed

  • to do more than two centuries ago,

  • frustrate the efforts of would-be treasure hunters

  • to shut off the flow of water to the booby trapped system

  • that guards the Money Pit.

  • It's all caving in now.

  • He's lost a ton of hole.

  • He's lost a ton.

  • Do we need to see anything more there?

  • I just think it's going to cave in too fast.

  • I'd say put enough in there to make that stable.

  • Yeah.

  • Hold on, mate.

  • Let's reposition.

  • NARRATOR: In order to stabilize the area

  • against further cave-ins, the team

  • will now need to act quickly in order to backfill the hole.

  • Unfortunately, this also means that any further digging

  • in search of the main flood tunnel

  • will have to wait until the ground has settled.

  • We take some risks out here, and this is a dangerous place.

  • It would just be foolhardy to keep digging.

  • It wouldn't have made any sense.

  • It was sloughing all the time.

  • Dead hit.

  • Suddenly, you got [inaudible] water.

  • You can put a line on that and towards the Money Pit.

  • I think we may have to give up on that one.

  • For now.
