What’s So Fishy about this Dolphin Story?

What Next, NZ Police Swapping Dead Americans?

First they were married; then barely engaged. One second she was alive;  the next she was dead floating face down on water.

One second she was alive and well, as healthy as a healthy 27-year-old woman can be; almost exactly 5 seconds later she was so dead she was floating face down on the water. Even immediate CPR couldn’t revive her.

In How NZ’s Dolphin Watch EcoTours Make Dolphins Hate Humans

You read: A 27-year-old American woman was killed today while swimming with dolphins in Tory Channel in the Marlborough Sounds, South island, New Zealand.

Local police said the woman was on a ‘Dolphin Watch EcoTours’ trip with her family. She was swimming among dolphins when other swimmers noticed she was floating face down.

Police is on record as reporting that she was traveling with her husband and his mother.

Meanwhile the police, acting in their capacity as the “caring attorneys” for Dan Engelhaupt, the owner of  Dolphin Watch EcoTours, prevented their “client” from making a statement to the press.

The locals, whose livelihood depends on causing stress to the dolphins, declared their interests, too: 

Arrow Water Taxis owner operator Paul Quinn said operators in the area were right behind Mr and Mrs Engelhaupt.

Soon, help arrived from the government:

Provisional autopsy findings from Christchurch coroner Sue Johnson indicate the woman, 27, died of natural causes rather than drowning. Further test results were expected in a few weeks.

Wouldn’t it be a damn shame if the body was cremated by mistake!

Then came reports of the unusual request:

Her family, including her husband and his mother who were travelling with her, asked police not to release the woman’s name.[Actually, it was probably the police trying to figure out what to do next]:

The next day, everything changed:

An America tourist is grieving after the girlfriend who accepted his proposal of marriage died 24 hours later while swimming with dolphins.

Could we also know who the victim was?

Emily May Harper, 27, from Denver, Colorado, is thought to have died from natural causes as she swam in Tory Channel in the Marlborough Sounds on Tuesday.

What about her husband?

Actually, the police lied. Because in the latest version of the story, she wasn’t even married.

Oh!

Her boyfriend Matthew Hawkins proposed to her on Monday and she said ‘yes’.

Mr Hawkins said yesterday he believed his girlfriend was fit and healthy.

And here’s rest of the latest version of this sad love story:

Their last night together was memorable for all the right reasons, he told The New Zealand Herald.

He said they had been walking together at Picton Harbour, watching the lights reflecting off the water.

“I came up to her from behind and gave her a hug, and I said to her, ‘We should get married’. And she said, ‘What, are you serious?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I think I am’. And then she said, ‘Yes, absolutely’.”

He said he had planned to ask her two days later and she never saw the ring he had bought because it was with his mother.

“I meant to ask her in Auckland, but the setting was just perfect.”

Next morning, the pair sailed out into the Marlborough Sounds with Mr Hawkins’ mother Sandra and brother Andrew on a Dolphin Watch Ecotours vessel.

He said she loved animals and wildlife and was very excited about the dolphin encounter.

“Emily kept giving me a thumbs-up signal while she was in the water.

“I took my eyes off Emily for barely a second, and I saw someone face down in the water.”

He said CPR began immediately but she could not be revived.
