This is a real life story.
A female sailor was probably eaten by a giant mysterious underwater creature off the Bay of California in 2007.
Her body was never found but rescuers found her video cameras, set up at various angles on her boat, containing chilling footage of the final moments in her life.
This is the real life story of Sharon Novak, a professional sailor and magazine writer.
Sharon Novak was broadcasting her solo sailing trip around the world over the net, while chatting with her boyfriend and co-writer, Charles, back home.
As Sharon began her final approach home to Monterey Bay, she found her boat struck several times, but, though shaken, she thought little of it. Although her boyfriend suggested that she not go into the water, she dived to inspect her backup motor engine, finding it clogged with a chunk of what she assumed was whale flesh.
She then followed a mysterious distress call to an abandoned boat, with what appearead to be blood all over one side. Panicked now, she decided that she definitely should not go into the water.
One of her cameras was destroyed and she tried to investigate, but she was struck thrice more and fell overboard.
She was last seen struggling to get back in her boat as it drifted off and was never seen again.
The vague silhouette of an underwater plesiosaur-like creature can be seen twice on the top of the screen from the camera views. In the first glimpse, the creature was passing by the boat while the woman was on board.
In the next, it was heading for her after she fell overboard.
Sharon failed to make it back to the boat and either drowned or devoured by the creature. An unnamed, previous victim's blood was seen on an empty boat, indicating that the creature came and killed him.!!!
