Long distance ocean swimmer Adam Walker was midway through his crossing of New Zealand's Cook Strait when he saw a great white shark approach him from below. The British athlete was raising funds for a group focused on whale and dolphin conservation.

Suddenly, a pod of dolphins swam up and surrounded him, seemingly focused on human conservation.

A crew on his assist boat recorded the event and posted it on YouTube reporting that the dolphins stayed with Adam for more than an hour, close enough for him to touch.

"Incredible," one woman is heard exclaiming as she recorded. A swim coach, Walker is tackling the hardest 7 oceans in the world, "the Oceans Seven" to raise money and awaren

Jindo, South Korea (CNN) -- In the final, chaotic moments before the South Korean ferry Sewol rolled over and sank into the chilly waters of the Yellow Sea, 48 girls obeyed the orders of crew members and put on their life vests. Perhaps afraid, they all crammed into a single room meant for 30.

None of them survived.

The account of the recovery of the girls' bodies, offered Friday by rescue officials, offers a glimpse of the final moments aboard the sinking ferry, which went down April 16 with 476 people aboard.

It also illuminates the daunting task facing divers trying to retrieve bodies while maintaining a fading glimmer of hope that perhaps, somewhere aboard the ferry, someone re

The U.S. military has spent $11.4 million in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, according to officials at the Pentagon.

That includes $3.6 million for underwater surveillance by a Navy submarine and $4,200 per flight hour for the P-8 Orions used to scour the southern Indian Ocean.

The Pentagon has previously said there are no plans to ask the Malaysian government for reimbursement.

So far, the high price comes with few concrete leads. A contingent of countries, which includes Malaysia, Australia and China, have failed to find any physical evidence of where Flight 370 crashed after disappearing March 8 from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing.

This week, Cyrus also canceled concerts in St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri. She postponed a show in Charlotte, North Carolina, last week because of the flu.

Divers swam through the water Wednesday searching for the bodies of children in cabins and corridors of the sunken South Korean ferry.

According to Reuters, the divers can only see a few inches in front of them in the wreckage of the ship.

Most of the bodies found had broken fingers, presumably from children frantically trying to climb walls or floors to escape, local media reported, according to Reuters.

"We are trained for hostile environments, but it's hard to be brave when we meet bodies in dark water," diver Hwang Dae-sik told Reuters.

A maritime professor, who spoke with the third mate who was steering the ferry before it sank, said Wednesday that he suspects there was a p
