To discover what was hiding underneath the ground, Irwin brought a metal detector expert on board to do the job. When the detector started beeping incessantly at a random spot on the lawn, the expert marked them immediately. He believed this is where the mysterious underground surprise could be found.
The metal detector expert was suddenly filled with intrigue. He knew the machine wouldn’t have started beeping like that if this were regarding a simple pair of barbecue tongs. There was more to this finding than he could ever imagine.
It Was Their Lucky Day
David and Ruth gladly passed the watch over to the museum and enjoyed their earnings. They were able to go on their tropical holiday as they had planned for years, they were able to help their family with whatever they needed, and they had no worries about their retirement years.
What started off as a mystery, was eventually solved, at least partially, as the body has still not been found, and the lives of so many have been changed following this amazing finding. One man's loss is another man's gain, and with no doubt, Davd's journey paid off at the end of the day.
The little watch David found turned out to be part of a much bigger story. Can you imagine what would have happened had he found something bigger? That's exactly what happens in the following story.
Have you ever wondered what's hidden deep underneath your house? Surely just dirt, you might think. However, you might be surprised to find something spectacular hidden right under your feet. It’s always a little magical when we find hidden treasures in our backyard — we feel like modern-day explorers.
There are stories of people finding 650-year-old treasures, a rare whale fossil, a WWII airplane, and many other oddities you’d never imagine lying right under our noses. This exactly happened to Irwin when he discovered what was under his backyard. After finding the original house plan, he saw something very peculiar that he'd never noticed before.
Irwin was curious and had his theories about what he would find. Maybe some antique coins? Or some secret items dating back to WWI? Anything was possible. He started to dig. He found a metal object, completely covered in dirt, so he still couldn't be sure what it was. He’d heard the stories about the insane discoveries people made by unearthing thousand-year-old artifacts in their backyards. Was he about to become part of one of those stories?
What he discovered as he kept on digging, was a metal lid. He still wasn’t quite sure what the lid was a cover to. Apparently, the lid was extremely heavy to lift, but he was eager to know what was underneath it. At this point, he was ready for anything to happen. Was this the entrance to an underground tunnel? Was it a storage unit filled with boxes from hundreds of years ago? Whatever it was, it had been down there, untouched, for a very long time.
When he lifted the cover, he discovered various objects. Still, he was unable to make sense of them. They looked like blades, except they were descending further into the ground. Were those stairs? In order to get a better look, he needed to get more dirt out of the way so he could crawl inside.
These weren’t regular stairs but a rather old-fashioned spiral staircase. Just like the ones you see in horror movies. What was at the bottom of the stairs, and why did the objects look like blades? This whole scenario was getting creepier every second.
