Trapped man survives sunken ship trauma

Divers find man alive in sunken tugboat three days after being trapped in freezing water without food.

    A man who was trapped for three days under the Atlantic Ocean has survived.

    The tugboat he was sailing on capsized off the coast of Nigeria, killing all of his fellow crew members.

    Divers sent to the scene were looking only for bodies, but discovered hungry and terrified Harrison Odjegba Okene in freezing water.
