LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) -- Entombed at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an upended tugboat for three days, Harrison Odjegba Okene begged God for a miracle.

The Nigerian cook survived by breathing an ever-dwindling supply of oxygen in an air pocket. A

in May that was posted on the Internet more than six months later has gone viral this week.

As the temperature dropped to freezing, Okene, dressed only in boxer shorts, recited the last psalm his wife had sent by text message, sometimes called the Prayer for Deliverance: "Oh God, by your name, save me. ... The Lord sustains my life."


Wow, that is one lucky man. I guess this video is more than six months old but it's recently gone viral and this is the first I've seen it.

I think its a miracle he survived and was found in time. Poor guy, that would of been so scary being trapped down there for that long.

I think he is one of the luckiest men in the world to have survived this. Guess God must like him.
