Nigerian sailor survives underwater @30 meters for 60 hours



quote:

A Nigerian sailor who survived for almost three days underwater by crouching in an air bubble after his tugboat capsized has spoken about his ordeal.


quote:

The water swept him into another toilet as the boat plunged 30 metres into the freezing depths. Wearing only his underpants, Okene prayed as water seeped slowly but steadily into a 4ft sq air bubble in the cabin.


quote:

He had been underwater for almost 60 hours when he heard a hammering on the deck. A team of South African divers scouring the waters on a presumed body recovery operation were shocked to hear faint hammering in reply.

African black people are way different than your peeps. They are damn near SEALs before they become teenagers. Commandos in the sea or the land.
