Photos show Titanic prop, deep-sea hunter says

Millionaire oilman Jack Grimm said that color photographs taken of the North Atlantic ocean floor this summer "definitely show a propeller of the Titanic." The photos, taken at a depth of more than 12,000 feet with exotic new deep-sea photo equipment, have been studied since the second phase of Mr. Grimm's two-year expedition ended in July.

Pictures indicate the propeller blades are suspended above the ocean floor, leading Grimm to believe the propeller is still attached to the wreckage of the luxury liner. He is certain enough of his find that he will consider another venture next summer in the hope of boarding the ship.
