Nigeria Rescue-3 [Duplicate]

In this image made available Tuesday Dec. 3, 2013, Harrison Odjegba Okene, 2nd left, poses inside a decompression chamber with members of the DCN Diving team who saved his life after being trapped for three days underwater. Okene was working as a cook aboard a tugboat in the Atlantic Ocean off the Nigerian coast in June 2013, when a heavy swell caused the vessel to capsize and his boat sank to the sea bed, where his 11 colleagues drowned, but Harrison Okene was able to find an air pocket inside the sunken ship where he survived for nearly three days before being found by a group of South African rescue divers. A video made available Tuesday Dec. 3, 2013, was filmed while the South African crew searched his vessel and found Okene alive after three days underwater without food or water. Okene was given oxygen and led to safety and to a decompression chamber. (AP Photo/DCN Diving)
