Nigerian man survives a sunken tug boat accident, while being trapped under

100 feet of water in the Atlantic Ocean.

This photo of his hand was taken by frightened rescuers, as they thought they were searching only for corpses after the 3 days the boat sat on the bottom of the Sea.

Harrison Odjegba Okene, the tug’s Nigerian cook, had survived for three days by breathing an ever-dwindling supply of oxygen in an air pocket.

A video of Okene’s dramatic rescue  can be seen at —

— was posted on the INternet after the rescue and has gone viral this week . Video shows the unlikely rescue of a ship’s cook, who survived for almost three days trapped in an air bubble in his sunken ship. A miracle for all the World to witness.

As the temperature dropped to freezing, Okene, dressed only in boxer shorts, recited a psalm his wife had sent him earlier by text message, sometimes called the Prayer for Deliverance. “Oh, God, by your name, save me. … The Lord sustains my life.”

To this day, Okene believes his rescue after 72 hours underwater was the result of divine deliverance. The 11 other seamen aboard the tug Jascon 4 died.

On the video, there was an exclamation of fear and shock from Okene’s rescuers, and then joy as the realization set in that this hand belonged to a survivor. “What’s that? He’s alive! He’s alive!” a voice can be heard exclaiming.

Thank YOU Lord for saving this precious mans life by your grace.

WE accept your true miracle and pray we gain the wisdom you mean to teach willing souls about the meaning of life and the meaning of death.

WE see your mercy when you spare our lives in a miraculous way like this …even though …We all know that we often times grieve you, dear GOD.
