What a strong emotional story. The descriptions are so very vivid I was right in the plane with you. And terrified! Excellent writing.

Wow. I can only imagine what else might have been in that murky river, but I'm sure that the shore was the only thing that mattered--a good lesson for all of us in times of trouble. Looking back, down, or anywhere other than the goal may surely stop our feet from moving! I like how your MC sacrificed to help care for Marco and Anna, but I want to know about the others...and how Maria's father is coping...perhaps you will share an update in a future challenge? Great attention to detail--you did your homework. :-)

Wow! What a harrowing experience...I was on the edge of my seat. Great writing!
If I had three thumbs, they'd all be up! Excellent job!

Wow, is this a true story? Yikes!
You certainly showed the truth of your title in your gripping story.
