船倾斜摆荡着。

一波海浪汹涌地冲击过来。轰然一声,船身被冲击得向一边倾斜。白色浪花四溅。

船上乘客不少。他们大部分已经晕船晕得不能动弹了,吐得到处狼藉不堪,有的甚至连胆汁都吐出来了。随着船身倾斜,他们顺势向一边倾动着,然后慢慢又回复回来……。

一波海浪又汹涌地冲击过来……。

那台风暴风圈相当大,风又大,雨又急骤。现在虽然已经快过了;但是它来时,带来的大风和骤雨,却造成了许多灾害:陆地上是树倒枝折干断,许多建筑屋顶不牢的都被吹刮而去,海上是波涛汹涌,船倾桅断,甚至有被沉没的……。

这艘船便是受害者之一。

这是一艘客船。当这个台风来袭的时候,它正在外海,不幸马达坏了,修复不了,赶不回海港避风,只得一边发出求救信号,一边任它在海上漂荡了。

更不幸的是,“福无双至,祸不单行”,船被风吹袭,波涛推挤,不能自我控制,到处漂荡的结果,撞上了暗礁,船底破了,水流进船舱了。

水渐流渐多,渐流渐多……。

没有多久,船倾斜了。

当危急之际,救援船适时来到。它冒着狂暴的风雨,在汹涌的波涛中,勇敢前来救援,船身也是不住地倾斜摆荡着……。

这客船却继续不住地倾斜摆荡着,而且更加严重……。

客船上起了一阵欢呼。是绝处逢生!是死里逃生!有救了!

船长下令,准备换搭救援船,放弃客船。

船客们到处奔逐着,推挤着,纷纷换搭救援船。大家要逃命呀!争先恐后是必然的。先一步上救援船的,可能可以获得保全性命,慢一步上不了救援船的,很可能就要葬身海底了。

船上工作人员在船长的指挥下,帮忙船客们从客船换搭救援船。

客船上的人,一个个搭上救援船,包括船客、船上工作人员,最后一个搭上的是船长。

这时,客船已经倾斜得很厉害,很有一下子沉入海底之虞。

当救援船才开走,离开客船,突然有人喊叫了起来:“看!那船上好像还有人!”

他这一喊叫,引起了大家的注意,纷纷转身往客船上看过去。

果然有一个人影。是一名晕船晕得不能动弹的吧!大家急着逃命,把他疏忽了的吧!现在,大家都走了,他为了逃命,拚命爬起来了。

“停下来!救他!”客船的船长走向救援船的船长,提出请求。

“客船就要沉了。不能耽搁了。再耽搁,我们会被波及,可能全部都逃不了。船沉没时涡旋的力量很惊人,你是知道的。”

救援船的船长提出异议,大家也随声附和。事实上,情势真的很危急了,再回过头去救,可能大家都要沦为波臣;可是客船船长仍然坚持着:“要救!我是那艘船的船长。我要负责船上每一个人的安全;不然,我就不能离开船。”

救援船的船长不予理会,下令继续把救援船开走。他不是见死不救。他的理由是,宁可牺牲一个人,不能大家都葬身海底,同归于尽。

客船的船长没办法,急奔到船边,扑通一声,跃入海里,在汹涌的波涛中游向客船;可是跃入海里过没几分钟,他便被汹涌的波涛所淹没,再也见不到他的身影了……。

The Death of the Captain   Hsu ChiCheng

The ship inclines and sways to and fro…

The spray rushes a wave after a wave with waters raging. With a sound of boom, the hull of the ship inclines toward one side. The white spray splashed in all directions.

There quite a lot of passenger. Half of them are ship sickness into motiveless, in a dreadful predicament, someone even spits out the bile. They roll to one side according to the incline of the hull, and then reverse slowly…

A wave of spray with water raging rushes again…

It’s quite a big the circle of the typhoon, the wind is strong, the rain is hasty. Although the typhoon is nearly gone now, but it brought strong wind and hasty rain while it come, and caused certain calamities: on the land, the trees fell down and the bough and twig are broken, many tops of the buildings which are not firmed blown by the wind, and there are raging of the spray on the sea, the ship is inclined and the mast is broken, even some are submerged.

This ship is one of the victim.

This is a passenger ship. It’s on the open sea while the typhoon is come, and unfortunately the motor is out of order, can’t repair immediately, to back to the harbour to be sheltered in time, just to set off the message for help, and let it to floating on the sea.

Farther more unfortunately, “No double the lucky, misfortunes never come singly”, for blown by the wind, pushed by the breakers, the ship can’t control itself, the result of floating, it bumped into the submerged reef, the bottom of the ship is broken, the water flowing into the cabin.

The water flowing more slowly, flowing more slowly…

By and by, the ship is inclined.

In this time of critical situation, the ship for help arrived in time. It took risks against the wild wind and rain, amongst the surging wave, to save them bravely.
The passenger ship inclines and sways incessantly, and more seriously…

There is a piece of hail on the passenger ship. It’s rescued from desperate situation! It’s a narrow escape!

The captain set out an order, all prepare to take on the ship for help, and give up passenger ship.

The passengers run everywhere, pushing and squeezing, all sorts of them change to take on the ship for help. Flee for their life! Strive to be the first and fear to lag behind is necessary. Whoever takes on the ship first will be saved, whoever doesn’t take on the ship may be buried in the bottom of the sea.

The staffs help the passengers to change to get on the ship for help under conduction of the captain.

Every one takes on the ship one by one, encloses the passengers, staffs, the captain is the last one to get on.

At that time, the ship is more and more incline, it’s quite a doubt to sink into the bottom of the sea immediately.

As soon as the ship for help set off to depart the passenger ship, there is someone shout out: “Lo! It seems there is someone still stays on the ship!”

It rouses the attention of all, all sorts of them turn to look onto the passenger ship.
It’s truly there is someone stays on the passenger ship. May he is ship sickness into motiveless! May all oversight of him for they are hurry in escape! Now, all are gone, he makes a desperate fight to arouse for escape.

“Stop! We must save him!”The captain of the passenger ship goes toward the captain of the ship for help, and asks him.

“The passenger ship will soon sink. We can’t delay. If delay, we will be affected, may we all can’t escape! You know the power of the whirlpool when the ship sunk will be very surprised.”

The captain of the ship for help offers the objection, all are echo. In fact, the situation is very urgent, may all will be drowned if return to save him: but the captain of the passenger ship insists still: “Save! I’m the captain of that ship. I’m responsible to every body on the ship; or I can’t depart the ship.”

The captain of the ship for help pay no attention to him, set order to set off the ship for help. He is not dismayed at the prospect of death. His reason is: would rather to sacrifice one, can’t let all of them to be buried into the bottom of the sea, and perish together.

The captain of the passenger ship is unable to find a way out, he runs to the edge of the ship, pit-a pat, jumps into the sea, swim toward the passenger ship in the surging wave; however, not after he jumps into the sea a few minute, he is covered by the surging wave, disappears his figure…@
