According to evidence brought before a property tribunal, Dubai’s lavish man-made World Islands are sinking back into the sea.

The islands, which each sell for millions of dollars, are shaped like the countries of the world.

While nearly 70 percent of the islands have been sold, all but one sit empty today. Now Penguin Marine, the company in charge of providing boat travel to the islands, claims that they are deteriorating quickly and sinking into the water.

The company brought the evidence to light in an attempt to get out of its current contract with the island’s developers.

Island owners strongly deny the reported sinking and maintain that development of the project will continue in the near future.
