The Lady of St Kilda, Sofia Sin and the Cockatoo Spirit?

A few Australian news stories caught my synchromystic eye this morning, especially this one -
DJ in hospital, pet cockatoo dies after factory blaze
"Arson chemists are investigating after a powerful fire tore through a converted Melbourne factory, leaving a popular DJ in hospital and her pet cockatoo dead.
Firefighters were called to the former meat factory on Greeves Street,
St Kilda, about 7.45am following reports of a fire in the rear of the top floor.
It’s believed
Sophia Sin, the property’s sole occupant, and her pet cockatoo “Spirit” were forced to escape through a window as flames quickly spread.

Ms Sin, 29, was taken to The Alfred Hospital in a serious condition with a broken arm and injuries to her legs and head.
She is expected to make a full recovery.
Spirit sadly died due to smoke inhalation.

This cockatoo story above was also gaining a lot of attention in the news media, oddly enough.
"St Kilda is an inner suburb (neighbourhood) of the metropolitan area of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 6 km south-east of Melbourne's Central Business District.

"Before being officially named St Kilda in 1841 by Charles La Trobe, who was superintendent of the Port Phillip District of
New South Wales, the area was known by several names, including 'Green Knoll' and 'The Village of Fareham'.
It was named after the schooner Lady of St Kilda, which was owned between 1834 and 1840 by Sir Thomas Acland.
In 1840 Thomas Acland sold the vessel to Jonathan Cundy Pope of Plymouth who sailed for Port Phillip in Melbourne in February 1841.
The vessel was moored at the main beach for most of that year, which was soon known as "the St Kilda foreshore.
The schooner Lady of St Kilda was named in honour of
Lady Grange, who was imprisoned on the island of Hirta, the largest island in the St Kilda archipelago, on the western edge of Scotland, by her husband in 1734–40."
"The bell from the Lady of St Kilda hangs over the doorway of the Chapel of St Leonard, Tivington in Somerset, England.
The chapel is within the parish of Selworthy which is part of the Porlock and Porlock Weir with Stoke Pero, Selworthy and Luccombe benefice within the Diocese of Bath and Wells"
For Whom the Kristen Bell Tolls?

Man dies after being found unconscious off Bells Beach
"A man has died after after being found unconscious in the water off Victoria's Bells Beach.
Emergency services were called to the beach at about 10.15am after they received reports of an unconscious man in the water.
Paramedics treated the man at the scene but he could not be saved.
Bells Beach is located 100 km south-west of Melbourne near Torquay."

So I have I gone overboard here with the synchromystic connections swimming/flying around in the news lately, or is the siren calling out from the depths of the "collective unconsciousness"?
"There’s probably a perfectly good explanation for it, and there is absolutely no reason to be alarmed, but hundreds of great white sharks are congregating in a remote spot deep in the Pacific.
Which is fine!
Yes, great white sharks are typically solitary creatures, so researchers were a bit surprised to realize just how many of them travel to the same spot halfway between Hawaii and Mexico’s Baja California.
And yes, it’s true that the strange behavioral patterns the sharks exhibit once they get there—diving 1,000 feet toward the ocean floor and back up again, as often as every 10 minutes, for example—have never been previously recorded in any study of great white shark migration."
"But do not worry.
Hundreds of great white sharks have been mysteriously drawn to the same New Mexico-sized patch of the Pacific every spring for at least the last 10 years, like it’s some kind of shark Davos."
I think I need a coffee after writing this post;-)
Is the Siren Song an Archetypal Swan Song for Our Times Telling Us That We Have Buckley's Chance?

Let's hope not.
2018 and that Sinking/Synching Feeling?
