Shah describes his attempt to escape the infestation in India by trying to get on a ship and head out to sea. At the shipyard, he witnessed the best and worst of humanity. Panicked and desperate people thronged the beach, and some boat owners asked them for large sums of money or sexual favors to row them to the few ships that were docked out at sea. Some other boat owners put their own lives at risk to return repeatedly to help these stranded people. Shah realized that the seas weren’t safe either, as some people who tried to swim out to the ships were dragged down and bitten by zombies that were underwater.
