The Death of the Captain Hsu ChiCheng
The ship inclines and sways to and fro…
The spray rushes a wave after a wave with waters raging. With a sound of boom, the hull of the ship inclines toward one side. The white spray splashed in all directions.
There quite a lot of passenger. Half of them are ship sickness into motiveless, in a dreadful predicament, someone even spits out the bile. They roll to one side according to the incline of the hull, and then reverse slowly…
A wave of spray with water raging rushes again…
It’s quite a big the circle of the typhoon, the wind is strong, the rain is hasty. Although the typhoon is nearly gone now, but it brought strong wind and hasty rain while it come, and caused certain calamities: on the land, the trees fell down and the bough and twig are broken, many tops of the buildings which are not firmed blown by the wind, and there are raging of the spray on the sea, the ship is inclined and the mast is broken, even some are submerged.
This ship is one of the victim.
This is a passenger ship. It’s on the open sea while the typhoon is come, and unfortunately the motor is out of order, can’t repair immediately, to back to the harbour to be sheltered in time, just to set off the message for help, and let it to floating on the sea.
Farther more unfortunately, “No double the lucky, misfortunes never come singly”, for blown by the wind, pushed by the breakers, the ship can’t control itself, the result of floating, it bumped into the submerged reef, the bottom of the ship is broken, the water flowing into the cabin.
The water flowing more slowly, flowing more slowly…
By and by, the ship is inclined.
In this time of critical situation, the ship for help arrived in time. It took risks against the wild wind and rain, amongst the surging wave, to save them bravely.
The passenger ship inclines and sways incessantly, and more seriously…
There is a piece of hail on the passenger ship. It’s rescued from desperate situation! It’s a narrow escape!
The captain set out an order, all prepare to take on the ship for help, and give up passenger ship.
The passengers run everywhere, pushing and squeezing, all sorts of them change to take on the ship for help. Flee for their life! Strive to be the first and fear to lag behind is necessary. Whoever takes on the ship first will be saved, whoever doesn’t take on the ship may be buried in the bottom of the sea.
The staffs help the passengers to change to get on the ship for help under conduction of the captain.
Every one takes on the ship one by one, encloses the passengers, staffs, the captain is the last one to get on.
At that time, the ship is more and more incline, it’s quite a doubt to sink into the bottom of the sea immediately.
As soon as the ship for help set off to depart the passenger ship, there is someone shout out: “Lo! It seems there is someone still stays on the ship!”
It rouses the attention of all, all sorts of them turn to look onto the passenger ship.
It’s truly there is someone stays on the passenger ship. May he is ship sickness into motiveless! May all oversight of him for they are hurry in escape! Now, all are gone, he makes a desperate fight to arouse for escape.
“Stop! We must save him!”The captain of the passenger ship goes toward the captain of the ship for help, and asks him.
“The passenger ship will soon sink. We can’t delay. If delay, we will be affected, may we all can’t escape! You know the power of the whirlpool when the ship sunk will be very surprised.”
The captain of the ship for help offers the objection, all are echo. In fact, the situation is very urgent, may all will be drowned if return to save him: but the captain of the passenger ship insists still: “Save! I’m the captain of that ship. I’m responsible to every body on the ship; or I can’t depart the ship.”
The captain of the ship for help pay no attention to him, set order to set off the ship for help. He is not dismayed at the prospect of death. His reason is: would rather to sacrifice one, can’t let all of them to be buried into the bottom of the sea, and perish together.
The captain of the passenger ship is unable to find a way out, he runs to the edge of the ship, pit-a pat, jumps into the sea, swim toward the passenger ship in the surging wave; however, not after he jumps into the sea a few minute, he is covered by the surging wave, disappears his figure…@
