  • Falling action
  • The waves got worse because of the storm. Then they spotted a lighthouse and tried to go towards it. Although they knew it was dangerous because the waves could turn over the boat. They thought it was worth the risk if it meant getting to land
  • Resolution

  • The four sailors start going towards the waves to get to shore. A wave hits them from behind and knocks them out of the ship. They lose track of each other.

The Oiler is nowhere to be found.
  •  They continue to try to get back to shore. They are all too tired to keep going on. The oiler still can't be found. They hear someone running on the shore to come help. The correspondent and cook were dragged ashore by the man.  the captain made it on his own. The oiler still can be found.
