Medellin town recovers WWII tank submerged in Dagusungan River
March 07,2020 - 10:21 AM

The US-owned tank was crossing the Dagusungan bridge during WWII when it was bombarded by Japanese troops causing this to fall into the water.

Over time, the tank was slowly covered in mud.

The tank’s turret was already recovered years back and is now on display at the Bogo-Medellin Milling Company, Inc. (Bomedco) plaza.
