Re: New Video: Man survives 2 days in wreck 100' deep

Let me tell you how I can relate to this; When I was working at a Boy Scout camp in up-state NY, as water front staff we had a lost swimmer alert. I was assigned to search under the docks. and after more then 10 min. and the 3rd or forth section I saw a very white leg and knew I found what had to be the swimmer dead. When I went to grab him to pull him out he jerked back, ...my heart stopped, my brain couldn't process that he was still alive, but he had stuck his head in between the floats of the dock where he could breath. He ended up being fine it took me a day or so to shake it off.

What I can't imagine is the cooks thoughts about how long his air was going to hold out and if he should have tried to save himself before it did run out.
