Hate to burst your bubble, but it turns out not to be the case.
This has been dealt with here before.

Hate to burst your bubble again, but how any postulated 'aquatic
ape' deals with predation is _not_ off the thrust of the main
argument. It is central to the viability of the hypothesis. And if
"psychic tears" is what passes for a strong argument, then AAH is on
even weaker ground than _I_ thought.

BTW, we're all still waiting for the references to your claim
about aquatic animals vs terrestrial animals in shedding tears from
emotional distress.
