SANTA CATALINA ISLAND, Calif. (CNN) - Imagine going on a leisurely snorkel and then seeing a rare 18-foot oarfish.
A Catalina Island Marine Institute instructor spotted the rare animal just off Santa Catalina Island in southern California and approached the snake-like fish very cautiously before she realized it was dead.
It then took 15 adults to move it to shore.
It's extremely rare to find an oarfish -- dead or alive. That's because they’re believed to mostly live in waters more than 3,000 feet deep -- leaving them largely unstudied by scientists.
The giant oarfish is the longest bony fish species and can reach lengths of 56 feet.
A winter storm warning is in effect for most of Central Indiana.
It's very rare that a single person can reach across national, racial, and spiritual borders to bring such hope and healing.
Dispatchers with Indiana State Police say a vehicle left the roadway Thursday night off of Interstate 69.
