    In June 1988, a live 100-pound World War II-era bomb was discovered at the bottom of Lake Washington in Seattle. We don't yet know how it got there, but the going theory is that a warplane flying in or out of an airfield that once stood in the area may have dumped the bomb in the lake.
    Why a pilot would do such a thing remains a mystery.

    Mystery Plane Turns Mundane

    Mystery Plane Turns Mundane

    [ranking: 15]
    Sonar equipment revealed a submerged plane at the bottom of Lake Norman in North Carolina in September 2013. At first, the small craft was a mystery, as there were no reports of a crash in the area. Moreover, divers did not discover any bodies inside the cabin. It was the last thing anyone expected to find.
    Theories as to the plane's origins and how it managed to end up at the bottom of the lake were bandied about by locals, but when a Cornelius woman, Barbara Anderson, came forward claiming the plane was hers, the intriguing mystery became rather mundane.  
    According to Anderson, flight instructors using her plane had simply forgotten to put up the locking gear, and the plane simply sunk. She had spent years and thousands of dollars attempting to locate the plane, but to no avail.

    A Missing Prosthetic Leg

    [ranking: 14]
    When a one-legged Wisconsin man lost his prosthetic while canoeing in a lake, he had no idea it would eventually be stolen by a beaver. Mark Warner's fake leg fell overboard to the bottom of the lake, and somehow made it into an important structural component of a local beaver's dam.
    Two other guys later spotted the leg and returned it to Warner for a $50 reward. Luckily, it wasn't his "everyday leg," so he'd been able to go on without it.
