Man saved by a shark in Pacific Ocean
London : In an extraordinary event, a police officer was rescued by a shark, which guided him to a rescue boat after he had drifted helplessly in the Pacific Ocean for 15 weeks. Toakai Teitoi’s brother-in-law died from dehydration and the 41-year-old policeman thought it was only a matter of time before he, too, would succumb. “Just as I was giving up all hope of being rescued after one boat had passed me by in the distance something very strange happened,” Teitoi said after being brought ashore in the Marshall Islands by the fishing boat which found him. “I was cowering from the sun under a piece of cloth I had stretched across the front of the boat when I felt a big bump, followed by some scratching, I looked over the side and saw a six-foot shark circling my boat, but it was mainly bumping against the hull. It definitely caught my attention I looked around me and saw the stern of a ship,” said Teitoi. “Of course I was able to wave and they came and picked me up. If that shark hadn’t nudged me awake the crew of the boat might have thought I wasn’t in trouble and might have carried on sailing past me,” Teitoi added.
