    Why wouldn't the other five passengers try to save the woman if they knew she was in cabin of boat??? Seems like it was a fend for yourselves situation??

      Probably was a fend-for-yourself panic. In bouncy water, I do not think you can see everyone with just your own head above water. Lifejackets?
