That's because he doesn't remember the moment he was shoved, and he has flashes of memory in the minutes before or after.

He said he believed the animals' vision was impaired by the spilled oil, which is how they ended up on the reef where they sustained fatal injuries.
In his first strategic message to the Air Force, Chief of Staff Gen. Charles "CQ" Brown is pushing for radical changes, saying the service must rethink its internal structure to better align with how airmen deploy around the world, and ditch unnecessary or aging equipment that can't give airmen the advantage on the battlefield. In his paper, "Accelerate Change or Lose," distributed to airmen Monday, Brown said the window of opportunity to adapt to a changing battlefield continues to shrink, which is why airmen need to address challenges -- from the coronavirus pandemic to emerging threats from a resurgent Russia or China -- head on.
