But a lighthouse signaled that help coming! The tired-out men fought towards the new hope of land. A lifeboat slowly crawled towards them. A cord shot towards the boat and caught it.

The stern sank, the boilers exploded, and the bow rested on the rocks, with the men clinging to it like tired flies.
