Buried Treasure is Find of a Lifetime

by CBS Local 1:52 mins

A camera was rolling when Rick Schmitt and his son Eric spotted a flicker of gold on the ocean floor by the Florida coast leading them to a remarkable find. Studies indicate it's the missing piece of an artifact found in 1989 from the late 1600s. Once thought to be a picture frame, researchers now feel it was a piece used by a high-ranking Catholic official to carry the Eucharist. The item has presumably spent 300 years on the bottom of the ocean floor and is worth thousands. Rick and Eric's family onboard rejoiced at the sight and it's been a high ever sense. "It's almost too much, to be honest with you," an emotional Rick told reporters.
