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

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.....

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

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

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

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

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.

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...

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.
