Man Found In Sunken Ship

When a tugboat capsized off the coast of Nigeria, Africa, it was thought that the dozen-man crew of the Jascon 4 were all lost. However, 62 hours later, a rescue diver reached out and found a miracle.
Video footage from the rescue diver's journey shows him reaching out, searching the tugboat. Suddenly a hand appears - the diver thought it was one of the deceased men, and then the hand grabbed him. After the initial shock from both the diver and the supervisor watching from shore, the diver was told to reassure him, like by patting him on the shoulder. When the rescuer followed the hand he surfaced in an air pocket to find the ship's cook, Harrison Okene.
The 29-year-old had been 30 meters underwater for about two and a half days, trapped in the air pocket created in the bathroom as the tugboat capsized and sunk. The exceptionally calm man followed the instructions of the rescue diver, finally reaching the surface again after so long. What an amazing story of discovery and survival.
