Then the sailors tried to abandon the ship; they lowered the lifeboat as though they were going to put out anchors from the front of the ship.
So the soldiers cut the ropes to the lifeboat and let it drift away.
The others held on to planks or debris from the broken ship. So everyone escaped safely to shore.
