Beached shrimp in Chile: The strangest objects washed ashore

The unusual sight of millions of dead shrimp in Chile is far from the first time bizarre objects have washed up on the world's coastlines.

The bizarre sight of millions of dead shrimp washed up on the coast of Santiago has baffled Chileans and marine experts alike.

Environmental officials are investigating after huge swathes of the tiny red sea creatures washed up on a beach in Coronel, 330 miles south of Chile's capital, Santiago.

Prosecutors say the bizarre incident could've been an environmental crime, and local fishermen say regional power firms for overheating the waters, endangering the lives of marine wildlife.
