Among The Sharks He Decides To...

Recommended Posts

"I just clung to one of the sacks with my good arm and screamed. But it was just me and miles of ocean. I was absolutely sure a shark would come and get me. My feelings were that I mustn't die, and I if survived I was going to set up my own business."

Thankfully for Mr Bronsman, one of his shipmates had seen him fall, and sounded the alarm. Two hours later he was rescued.

Call me old-fashioned, but the last thing I would be thinking of - when alone in shark-infested waters with a broken arm - would be setting up my own business...

Is this bloke nuts?

I guess he just didn't want to stay in the merchant navy.

On the other hand it does put the fear of bankruptcy in perspective.

Strange, I never heard this story while in Sweden. I got drunk on kopparbergs in my late teens/early twenties. Before then home brewed vodka. The memories.
