He decided to enjoy the evening and explore a little. He found himself overlooking the ocean. While he was admiring the view he leaned on the railings and slipped; falling into the water. Even though he was calling for help, no one was able to hear him. As he is calling for help he hears a gun shot and swam toward the sound. He ended up on an island.
