"Nigerian survives two days at sea, in underwater air pocket"

A Nigerian man has survived for two-and-a-half days trapped 30m (98ft) deep in freezing seawater.

Harrison Okene, 29, was on board the tug boat Jascon-4 when it capsized in heavy swells. It sank to the seabed, upside down, but Mr Harrison was trapped in an air pocket and able to breathe.

Of the other 12 people on board, 10 bodies have already been found and Mr Harrison is assumed to be the only survivor. Mr Harrison told Reuters journalist Joe Brock that he could hear fish eating the dead bodies of his fellow crew members.

A miracle of perfect conditions coming together.

Still that is bound to make one grateful for life whether they believe in a higher power or not. Hope he goes on to do wonderful things for those around him and to continue if he already has.

That would be a horrible experience to hear fish eating people.  Which I guess it would be worse to see it or be one of them.  Its amazing he survived bet he won't be the same.

And salt water, fishes, dark places, claustrophobia even being submerged in a bathtub would bring back memories.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Tell me about it!!

Hhe already says this about sleeping:-  "Mr Harrison describes his story as a "miracle", but he also told Reuters: "When I am at home sometimes it feels like the bed I am sleeping in is sinking. I think I'm still in the sea again. I jump up and I scream."

Incredible. What an ordeal for the poor guy. I'm guessing the only thought in your mind would be to just hold on until a rescue crew arrived, and to just survive. You'd probably be thinking about your family too. But just the pitch blackness and sea water for hour after hour after hour. Blow that. And your dead mates floating around being eaten by fish, right next to you. You'd have to have a strong mind to survive that in one piece.
