Ah, the flashback. I took these photos not really knowing what script I'd throw them together with. While writing it, at first I put them in chronological sequence. But it lacked something, so I decided to show the first two panels in flashback. I think it helps.

2015-12-16 Rerun commentary: In hindsight, I think panel 2 could have been improved if Steve had been holding a microphone.

I also want to point out that in panel 1, the paramedics are taking a pretty blasé approach to standing right next to a river with crocodiles in it. One thing I learnt from travelling in the Northern Territory of Australia is to always stay at least 3 metres away from a river bank. Crocodiles can lunge and attack with lightning speed, but they only do so for prey right next to the water's edge. If you stand back a few metres, you're pretty safe.
