Massive storm unearths ancient marble statue in Israel

A massive storm that raked Israel's coast has revealed a 1,700-year-old marble statue.

A resident walking on the shore in the southern city of Ashkelon spotted the headless statue of a woman, buried in the sand.

After searching the site, archaeologists also found the mosaic floor of what is believed to have been a Roman bathhouse.
