That night, Harvey, the captain of the ship was trying to kill his wife and end his 4 month old marriage for the sake of all the cash he'd get out of the insurance policy he had recently taken out. He planned on reporting it as a sea situation.

Julian Harvey later tried killing Terry Jo as well, as he assumed that she knows the entire incident and if left open, she'll spill the beans. But somehow, Terry escaped. She had to survive in the ocean for 4 days with a hope that someone will spot her safe her.
It was a Greek freighter, Captain Theo, passing through the Northwest Providence Channel and cutting through the Bahamas which would be the savior Terry Jo was hoping for. Despite the fever of 105, the sunburn and severe dehydration, she was still alive as a crew member took a photo of the frail figure floating alone in the enormous ocean waters.
