Man found alive in sunken ship


--- Subscribe for more ---On May 28th 2013, a South African scuba diving team were conducting a dead-body recovery effort. They were recovering bodies from a Nigerian ship that had sunk 3 days prior. What they found is astonishing. A sailer had actually survived by finding an air pocket for himself as the ship sunk to the bottom of the ocean. For 3 days Harrison Okene was living in the ship. He had no food, no water, and was in pitch black. Video footage of his rescue has recently been released. ______________________________________________What is GlobalLeaks? We live in a lively world.

    After 22 years in the NAVY I can say this man was the luckiest man in the world. The water in his region is not cold so hypothermia is not a problem. However the air he was breathing at that depth could have been extremely toxic if it had any petroleum contaminants. This is why he is the luckiest man in the world.

    He was not water logged because his air space was large enough for him to stay completely out of water. Again the luckiest man in the world.

    As for water leaking in there are spaces in ships where the seams are so well made that they hold air forever. At least until corrosion opens a hole. Depending on how the ship went down air can be compressed into the space raising the oxygen content ensuring enough oxygen content for survival over a few days.
    I am very impressed by the divers and the man in charge.
    Excellent story and Disclose TV gets an A Plus for this one.

    why didn't they wrap him in something to deal with hypothermia, which he didn't appear to have, I couldn't see him shaking, and I thought after 3 days he would be a bit wrinkly from being wet, 1 hr in a bath and I look like a fckn wrinkly old prune.
    for a recovery mission they only use like a camera with about 240 resolution, my sons water proof gopro is in 1080, wtf
    don't buy this storey

    where was he sitting? was he in the refrigerating room whit air tight sealed doors? water can be naughty in a case of sinking i mean it gets in to the tightest sealed compartments no matter what! i don't by this nonsense you will not find any part of a sunken ship under water where you have some breathing room ! air pocket had to be an air tight room but in the video they just swam in to that spot should have been filled whit water sitting on the bottom of the sea. at least this one has a happy ending!
