I guess if you are going to fall over board the South China
Sea may be the best ocean area to do so. Just saw a documentary about over fishing
by China, Tiwain, Vietnam
etc. The over fishing includes shark.
So there are in fact far fewer sharks in the South China Sea.
The number one killer is hypothermia so the South China Sea must be nice and warm.
There was a faimly of 4 that was lost
in the Gulf of Mexico
off the St. Pete area just about a month ago. They did not find anyone alive. They did find a girl wearing a life vest after a few days. Way more than 38 hours. They did not report what the cause of death was. That water should have been warm enough to survive I would have thought.
Just shows a combination of toughness and luck in the right ocean the right person can survive 38 hours.
