Check What Was Found In A Canal's Bottom In Paris, Unexpected!

You might have wondered at times what all end up at a canal's bottom after 15 years!

The Saint-Martin Canal in Paris was drained for cleaning purposes. The last time the operation was carried out was in 2001. The photos nicely show what all remains on a canal's bottom when it isn't cleaned since long.

According to The Guardian's report, the project which began on Jan. 4 will be continuing for three months.

Many fascinating things were found by the workers.
