Summary, etc.: Imagine yourself ... adrift in a four-metre tinnie in the shark-infested waters of the Pacific Ocean - lost and seemingly forgotten - shark bait! Ben Tooki, his uncle and a friend were caught in a storm off the island of Kiribati and swept out to sea. For forty six days they were adrift with little food or water. There's a storm shapin' up; it's been gettin' to full on all day. We hear the rumbling noise. It sounds like the music of a digeridoo, a kind of humming sound. "What's that noise, it's getting louder?" "It's comin' in our direction!" The wave grows into a giant bulge in the ocean. Lif.
