Great idea, but don’t do what these guys did.
Five SCUBA divers from Euope went diving in the vicinity of Indonesia in waters known to be very treacherous.
They quickly became separated from their boat, and floated in shark infested waters for two days.
Then, they found an island, and crawled onto the island to be safe. Big mistake….
The island was infested with giant Komodo Dragons who tried, it seems, to eat them. And why not? These humans are well within the normal size range for Komodo Dragons, and were probably pretty easy to catch, being tired and all. The stranded divers kept the giant lizards away by throwing rocks at them.
The divers spent one night on Rinca island before they were rescued. The divers — three from Britain and one each from France and Sweden — were rescued following a massive sea search in the area where they were last seen Thursday plunging into the water from their wooden boat, said Lt. Col. Buce Helo, a local police chief.
Personally, I think the reports that the dragons were going to eat the divers alive are exaggerated. They were probably simply waiting for them to die so they could scavenge them.
But in the end, the divers got away with their lives and a great story.
