This rescue is nothing shy of a miracle.
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 sailor 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.
Could you imagine? Just think about this sailor’s situation. He as in absolute darkness, no food, no water and hundreds of feet below the water. I wonder what it felt like as the rescue team started shining their lights inside that pocket of air after living in three days of total darkness.
Such an amazing story and an absolute miracle.
