New York images show a man stumbling upon a ‘torpedo’ with a ‘disturbing’ flashing light.

A New York man thought he discovered a washed-up buoy during a recent nature walk, until he approached it and noticed it contained a propeller and a “disturbing” flashing light, photos show.

What Tyler Davis most expected to find at Sampson State Park was peace and quiet, maybe some fossils, and “great views” of Seneca Lake, he told McClatchy News.

Instead, he found what looked like a misplaced weapon of war.

“Well, I think I found a torpedo perhaps?” Davis said in a Facebook post on February 10, where he shared a photo of his amazing discovery.

“Did you try hitting him with a hammer?” said one commenter.

Another suggested – a little safer? – The approach of throwing big stones at him “to see if anything happens.”

But, dangerous or not, Davis was too curious to turn away from the object.

“I knew I had found something amazing,” he said. “The only thing that was worrying was the flashing sensor lights that were going off.”

The images show that upon closer inspection, marks and letters can be seen all over the body.

There was also a phone number along the busy exterior, Davis said. He called but no one answered, so he left a message.

“It had some warnings, but I had no idea if it was dangerous or not,” Davis said.

While waiting for a call back, it occurred to him that the torpedo-like object would serve as a trophy, assuming it didn’t explode or start leaking nuclear waste.

“I definitely had the idea of ​​taking it, but with it still working and flashing, I wanted to return it,” he said.

Eventually, Davis’ call was answered.

The mysterious device was affiliated with the military base Seneca Lake sonar testing facility, according to Davis. He added that it was not a torpedo, but an MK 39 training device.

According to the Navy MK 39 mobile anti-submarine warfare training target, or EMATT, is used in training to “simulate the acoustic and dynamic characteristics of a submarine.” In other words, it functions like a mock submarine, a target used by sailors “to train detection, tracking and weapons use skills,” the Navy says.

Davis then helped the Navy find the missing MK 39.

He said: “When I was finally contacted, they thanked me… and asked me to mark the place on the map so they could recover it.” “They said after its course, they return to the surface and are collected but this one escaped.”

McClatchy News reached out to the Navy for comment but did not immediately receive a response.

Davis may have lost out on the best coffee table conversation piece, but at least he got a good story out of it.

It’s “the best discovery I will ever have!” He said. “Besides, I have to share it with a lot of people so I’m happy!”

Sampson State Park is located about 250 miles northwest of New York City.
