News Leads

In this story about a sunken treasure discovery, the news elements present are the who, deep sea explorers, and the what, a new treasure discover. Both of these elements are detailed, as the lead says that the explorers are the same ones who found $500 million in sunken treasure two years ago, and that the discovery was a legendary British man-of-war that sank 264 years ago. The generalities are the when, which isn't listed and the where, which is also not mentioned. The lead takes a straight-forward news approach and is only a single sentence.
