An Australian woman has found the world’s oldest known message in a bottle nearly 132 years after it was thrown into the sea, experts say.

Tonya Illman discovered the bottle half-buried in the sand on a beach in Western Australia, just north of Wedge Island, 180 kilometers (112 miles) north of the state capital Perth.
