    Lateral Thinking Puzzle
    Ok, here is another one and I am not sure if I like this one and it may be to easy to figure out but I will start with this one and go from there.

    In the middle of the ocean is a yacht. Several corpses are floating in the water nearby.

    The people on the yacht are responding to, or happened upon, a plane crash, or other accident.

    One person who couldn't swim fell in and one person after another jumped in to save him forgetting that they also couldn't swim. Until there was nobody left


    Either that or pirates

    Were the bodies floating people who had previously been on the yacht?

    Did they voluntarily go in the water? Were they forced into the water? Did they leave the yacht because they feared something on the yacht? Were they in the water to go swimming?

    Was there any damage to the bodies? Any visible blood? Had they been shot? Stabbed? Attacked by a shark?

    Was there something in the water that caused their deaths?

    Did they die of natural causes?

    Was there a reason they didn't return to the yacht?

    Did they die of natural causes? I don't think the way they died was really natural, so no.

    Was there a reason they didn't return to the yacht? Yes
    Sorry for this message here but I guess I had to put something in order to send it.
