Kate and Bill had been dating for 1 year and decided to go on a celebration date. They chose to go on a quick boat ride away from the sunshine coast (Queensland).
Bill and Kate were having a romantic lunch and were chatting on the deck when a dolphin splashed water right on them. They were startled and decided to see what was going on.
While they were leaning against the railing Bill accidentally fell into the ocean, and since they didn't pack a lifesaver Bill was stuck. Kate tried to call the police and lifeguards but there was no cell reception. Bill called out to Kate and told her that he was going to swim to the land.
Kate went back to the shore to get help. As night arrived, Bill made the decision to use big leaves as a blanket. He then had to find a good place to rest as the tide was rising. During the night it was very cold, but Bill managed by sleeping in the sand.
As morning arrived, Bill heard a plane that was low, passing by. He frantically ran around trying to signal the plane but it kept going. He sat down crying, not knowing whether he was going to make it.
He then remembered the S.O.S he created with rocks, far down the beach, just before he went to sleep. He looked up and saw the plane turn around, and descend.
