Florida family finds sunken treasure

Hunting for sunken treasure has finally paid off for one family after they found $300,000 of gold off the Florida coast.

A Florida family who spends their time together hunting for treasure struck it rich over the weekend, hauling up an estimated $300,000 (U.S.) worth of gold from an historic wreckage in the Atlantic Ocean.
Rich Schmitt and his family found Spanish gold chains and coins from the wreckage of a convoy of ships that sunk after being hit by a hurricane in 1715.
The state of Florida will take some of the gold for display in a museum.
Anne-Marie Tomchak reports.

“What’s really neat about them is they are a family, they spend family time together out there and the most amazing part about them is they always believed this day would come,” said Brent Brisben, whose company 1715 Fleet – Queens Jewels LLC owns the rights to the wreckage.
