Wow!

I couldn't imagine being in the darkness for that long, not expecting any salvation.

Incredible!

Diver:
"Sh1+, Sh1+"

Dive Master:
"What's that? Oh bugger all.. OK. You found one, ya?"

Diver:
"He's touching me"

Dive Master:
"He's ALIVE! He's ALIVE!"

I'd have soiled my wetsuit...

I saw this on the news . Never give up? How blessed is this man! I can not think how long just a half hour in the cold darkness must have been like years. WOW I pray he will be ok I sure it is not over.
My heart goes out to his mates left behind.
kind Regards, Lou

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.
