After a short while the hyena attacked and after a few attempts gets Orange Juice by the wrist and eventually kills her. She is beheaded. In quick succession after killing the zebra, the hyena attacks Orange Juice and kills her. Her head stays on.
   Pi very slowly tries to train Richard Parker using his sea sickness and the whistle. He does it over many days. He seems to get the results he needs after only one attempt.
   When Pi discovers that the boat is sinking he tries to return to the lower decks but sees that it is underwater. He goes back up to find some crew to help. He sees the water and dives in to try and swim down to help his family.
   Pi finds the Chinese sailors and asks for help. They grab him and throw him overboard. He falls onto the lifeboat and then the zebra jumps in. Pi comes along and finds the Chinese sailors trying to lower the life boat. The french cook is sitting in the back of the boat and another sailor is on the front. The zebra jumps onto the boat and knocks the others off the boat and Pi is left with the zebra.
   Pi jumps off the boat when Richard Parker jumps on. He then pulls himself up. Pi jumps off the boat and swims down and watches the freighter sink.
