Damn.

And behold the power of suggestion, she left a note saying her body hurt and it was time.

I was once told (mistakenly) that I was licensed to ill.   Needless to say, the rap concert I set up was not a success.

So she wanted to commit suicide and jumped off a boat but then hid from rescuers for five hours while doing her best to survive.  Is that making sense to anybody?

I don't get it.....

"DeRyan went to the doctor to find out what was causing chronic headaches, abdominal pain and nausea."
...
"The most shocking news came when doctors told DeRyan her previous terminal diagnosis was wrong. She was in perfect health."

That doesn't add up.

Rezurok: So she wanted to commit suicide and jumped off a boat but then hid from rescuers for five hours while doing her best to survive.  Is that making sense to anybody?


Yes. And then, instead of giving credit to the person who reported that she jumped, the Zodiacs, the several power boats, the helicopters, the dedicated training of the rescuers she says it just wasn't her time to go.

Okay, just re-read the article and she does want to thank the rescuers and does think they were compassionate, but still.

Holy crap that mobile site sucks. It kept scrolling the page to a Walgreens ad at the bottom.

Mya DeRyan was trying to keep her head above the frigid water in the Strait of Georgia, fighting off exhaustion and panic. DeRyan didn't want to be found.

Yeah. 5 hours in the water kind of sounds like she did want to be found.

Sorry about the brain tumor subs.  Hope it's not terminally.

Maybe, but apparently she made the right choice as the article claims the diagnosis was wrong.

Some ads do that. It's not the site, it's the Google(I assume) widget shiatting the bed. Ran into that before, complained in the Fark thread, other folks didn't have a trouble with it.

2017-12-06 10:22:58 PM  
You know, Og forbid I should ever get a terminal diagnosis, because I will probably be looking at the least horrible way to off myself, but one of the things I'll do before that IS GET A SECOND farkING OPINION.

Stupid idiot.  Chain some large weights to your ankles before jumping into the water.

I call bullshiat on the 5 hours. In October in that area the water temperature would be around 40 - 44 degrees, there is no way she would survive 5 hours (especially naked).

Holy shiat she is the poster-child for the flaky island hippy. The original diagnosis did not come from a real doctor.

Except we know when she jumped off the ship (someone saw) and we know when she was found (someone saw.)

How do you think she survived those five hours?

Here is a link to survival times in cold water (I tried to paste the section here but it didn't format correctly);

Yes, a chart exists, but someone saw her jump off the boat, her clothes were still on the boat, and she was found naked in the water five hours later after an intensive search.

What, specifically, are you calling bullshiat on?  That it was 5 hours from when she jumped into the water until she was rescued?  Do you think she had an inflatable raft she managed to hide for five hours?

Or was she maybe just extremely lucky that some bizarre confluence of events allowed her to survive?  Sometimes glitches happen.
