Kiwi 'ghost ship' drifts ashore

An unmanned "ghost ship" mysteriously appeared Thursday morning on a New Zealand beach after a long and rough voyage — apparently without a crew — across the Tasman Sea.

Two locals who were two of the first on the beach got straight into the business of discussing salvage rights.
