Watch This Amazing Rescue!
Capsized Tugboat's Cook Survives Almost 3 Days In Air Pocket!

When the Jascon-4 tugboat capsized in heavy seas off the Nigerian coast, it was feared all 12 souls on board had perished. But, some 60 hours after the tragedy, divers were stunned to discover a sole survivor in an air pocket beneath the overturned hull.

Mr. Okene, 29, only drew the attention of the divers when, by chance, he saw the light of a torch piercing the waters which were gradually rising around him.
In this moving video, you will see Mr. Okene reach out to the diver and hold his hand at the 5min 38sec mark. [If the video below is no longer working, click here].

Certainly, this is a powerful testament to the human will to live! Congratulations to Mr. Okene - a true survivor! Wonderful work by the dive team, too!
