INDIANAPOLIS - It's been 70 years since a Japanese torpedo sank the U.S.S. Indianapolis in the Philippine Sea.
This weekend, survivors of the warship saw photos for the first time from the days leading up to the incident.
The family of the photographer recently donated the never-before-seen pictures to the U.S. Naval Institute.
Harold Bray was onboard the U.S.S. Indianapolis when it was sunk. The Navy Seaman First Class spent four days in shark-infested waters before he was rescued.
"That was a real treat to see some of those [pictures]," Bray said. "I might have been in some of them where they had the group, but I didn't recognize any of them. I went on with 12 guys that I knew out of boot camp, and it was such a short time. I never got to know too many others."
Of the nearly 1,200 men onboard, Bray was one of 316 who survived.
The U.S. Naval Institute plans to digitize and preserve the photos. It also has plans to post them on its website.
