Just watched this video on youtube, pretty wild. This guy survived in the sunken tug for almost three days. The recovery diver gets quite a start when the hand reaches down and grabs him. Need video of the discovery and rescue of the guy shot from the helmet cam of the recovery diver.

Totally incredible. Goes to show you that it isn’t over until everyone has been recovered.

Unbelievable that he survived that long! Wonder about the details you would think he would have died from hypothermia and or carbon monoxide poisoning from the stale air? From the Donald duck talk they must have been breathing tri mix wonder what the depth was? How long was the cook in deco?
