Andrea Doria Bell Rings Out Again





The bridge bell of the Andrea Doria, the Italian ocean liner that famously sank in the Atlantic in 1956, rang out this week for the first time since the ship disappeared in the waters off Nantucket, Mass.

Partially buried at the ocean bottom, the 75-pound bronze bell was recovered by two divers, Carl Bayer and Ernest Rookey. They were part of a private expedition run by Tech Diving Limited, a company specializing in dives to some of the world's most famous shipwrecks.
