Video: The moment round-world sailor finds mummified body on drifting yacht


Unseen footage shows the moment a sailor in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race discovered the mummified body of a man on a stricken ship.

German sailor Manfred Fritz Bajorat was found by the LMAX Exchange crew east of the Philippines on board a Sayo yacht on January 31.

Stumbling upon the boat while racing between Australia and Vietnam, one man swam out and boarded the craft - making the grim discovery once he put his head inside the cabin.
