Y ou were on the Indianapolis?
What happened?
Japanese submarine slammed
two torpedoes into her side, Chief.

I was comir back
from the island of Tinian to Leyte...

...just delivered the bomb,
the Hiroshima bomb.

1,100 men went into the water.
Vessel went down in 12 minutes.
Didrt see the first shark
for about half an hour.

Tiger, 13-footer.
Know how you know that
when you're in the water?

Y ou tell by lookir
from the dorsal to the tail.

Well, we didn't know.
Because our bomb mission
had been so secret...

...no distress signal had been sent.
They didn't even list us overdue
for a week.

Very first light, sharks come cruisir...
...so we formed ourselves
into tight groups.

Kinda like old squares in a battle
like you see on a calendar...

...like the Battle of Waterloo.
The idea was,
the shark comes to the nearest man...

...and he starts poundir
hollerir and screamir.

Sometimes the shark would go away...
...but sometimes he wouldn't go away.
Sometimes that shark,
he looks right into you...

...right into your eyes.
Y ou know, a thing about a shark, he's got...
...lifeless eyes.
Black eyes, like a doll's eyes.
When he comes at you,
he doesn't seem to be livir...

...until he bites you.
Those little black eyes
roll over white and then...

...then you hear
that terrible high-pitched screamir.

The ocean turns red...
...in spite of the poundir and the hollerir,
they all come in.

They rip you to pieces.
