    @PeteFSpear @Sweet_oblivion1 @miklamx @MejiaoOmar No our focus was at the men at the anchor chain. CG Helo pulled captain out of the water.

    Thanks, everyone. Just got lucky once again.

    I found it as well fascinating that the dolphins were circling the crew members and protecting them from the sharks. Thanks Andrea for bringing it up.

    To me, it seemed that the crew members were on one side of the large drill ship, holding on to the pallet, refrigerator and the large chain of the drill ship. That is where the dolphins were circling. But the captain got separated from them and was on the other side (back side) of the large drill ship where no dolphins were and just moments before he could get rescued by the Coast Guard's helicopter, he got bit by a shark.

    dolphins are known for that. if there are dolphins in the water, a shark and a human, the dolphins will circle the human. For some reason, the sharks don't mess with the dolphins. I was told that when I was a child about the dolphins, sharks & circling humans.

    So IO am not misunderstood, my clicking on like is that I like the fact that someone finds this awful news. I notice...if I am not way off base...that shark attacks seems to be on the increase all over.

    If you are bleeding in the middle of the ocean you are in trouble....its not a shark attack when you are in the middle of the ocean, your sadly just lunch.
