Alrich falls off the boat to try and save his pipe and has to swim back to the shore because he couldn't get back on the boat. He was out of breath when he made it to the shore.
In the beginning Rainsford and Whitney were on a boat head towards and island named ship trap island going on a hunt for moose. They were on a yacht. There were jaguars where they were going.
Rainsford felt a sudden cold chill when there was no breeze. The sea was flat as a plate glass. They were drawing near the island then. he felt a mental chill or a sudden dread that this was a bad idea. Some sailors have a extra sense to sense when danger is near and i sensed the danger said rainsford
Rainsford said im not tired so im gonna go smoke another pipe on the back deck said rainsford. He told whitney goodnight and right after that he heard someone shoot a gun 3 times and he ran back to the back of the boat and his pipe had gotten knocked from his mouth and he tried reaching for it and reached to far and fell into the water.
The falling action is when the boys start hunting each other on the island one of them has a plan to find the other one before he find him he thinks he has it figured out but he really doesnet and in the end they all become friends and dont end up killing each other like they wanted to.
In the end of the story they both become friends after the hunt is over and neither one die which is a good thing because y kill eachother. everyone needs to live a great life and not die because its not worth dieing.
