Read/heard that he had thought he'd been there 12 hours or so rather than the 60 actual... I guess with no light, no way to track day to night, no reference to time it would be hard to know... You'd think your stomach would tell you it's been a while, but maybe he had some access to food...

Wonder what the water temp was at 100 feet down. It's an amazing story to survive in the pocket of air, but I would think that hypothermia would do one in after 60 hours even in relatively warm water. Quite a story that guy will have to tell the grandkids some day.

This story is amazing. The mental torture alone is just unbelievable to contemplate.

Besides the amazing part... the horror is the most difficult... know there are crew member's bodies near by... in the dark, losing all sense of time... fish eating your dead cohorts... maybe even sampling you from time to time... keeping your head up from drowning...

it seems like a nightmare that will probably follow him forever

Amazing stuff. I'd have probably had a heart attack when the diver touched me.

Truly Remarkable! A very lucky cook and a very capable, professional team of recovery divers! Listening to fish eating his mates in the dark!!!

It's the other way 'round, he grabbed the diver - imagine what the diver felt when the supposed "corpse" grabbed him!

I've got the full 50min clip of the rescue, but at 1.29 GB it's way to big to load, hell of a thing to watch....

The divers did a fantastic job of getting the poor bloke out of there, but the guy up top giving instructions is in a league of his own, if I ever found myself in that position whether as a diver or been rescued, I would want him up there controlling things, very professional outfit.....
