“He’s alive!” Video Of Man Saved From Sunken Ship Off Nigeria

A Nigerian ship’s cook survived nearly three days stuck in an air pocket. His 11 colleagues died when the boat capsized and sank off the Nigerian coast.

Apart from luck, he would have needed a lot of patience and the ability to remain calm in order to preserve valuable energy.

An amazing story of luck and survival

One of the rescuers asked Mr Okene his rank and on hearing that he was the crew’s chef, the co-ordinator responds: “You’re the cook? They always survive” – an apparent reference to a baker who survived the sinking of the Titanic.
