In 1949 a Captain Robert Frost a man in order to get his life vest as the ship sinks. He cheats Death on the ocean, but Death appears to him after he has been rescued and tells him that in order to balance the books he must live life as the man he killed who was not scheduled to die until 1999. The captain doesn't think this sounds so bad and so he agrees to go to an African village where he learns that the man he killed was dying of a slow flesh-eating disease he had contracted. He tries to throw himself into the ocean so that he can have his death back, but the ocean now rejects him. Death ignores his pleading and tells him he will be back for him in fifty years.[1]
