Again, they gave food and drinks. The same thing continued for days. All the crew members became fatter and fatter.

The deceased person was dressed in the finest clothes and precious jewellery. Sindbad was shocked and didn’t know what to do. The soldiers dragged Sindbad with his dead wife. They first lowered his wife, then the Sindbad down into the cavern (a deep hole under the ground) with a large jug of water and seven loaves of bread. He looked around at the grim tomb. He decided to eat and drink as little as possible to prolong his life. And so he lived in the darkness among the bodies without knowing how many days and nights had passed. 

Suddenly, Sindbad heard a rustling; it was a fox. He was happy he followed the sound. On the way, he collected many precious diamonds and jewellery. He saw a chink of light and crawled towards it. Sindbad found himself on the shore of the sea. He was so happy to see the ship that was loading goods. The captain and the crew gave a Sindbad ride to Baghdad. He traded some ornaments to the captain. After he returned to his house, he shared some with poor people.
