An 'Apostle' Collapses at Australian Landmark

July 09, 2005|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

One of Australia's "12 Apostles" has disappeared.

The 150-foot tower of limestone, one of nine stacks making up the landmark off Australia's southern coast, collapsed Sunday into the Indian Ocean -- apparently a victim of erosion. The formation off Victoria state is called the 12 Apostles even though there had been only nine outcroppings.
