WATCH: Divers find man alive... in a sunken ship!

The cook survived in an air bubble, for almost 3 days...

It's an amazing story of survival.

Video has been posted online of a man, who was found alive, trapped in a sunken ship, 98 feet below the surface.

Harrison Okene was the ship's cook and he spent almost three days in an air bubble at the bottom of the sea.

The drivers from DCN global diving company had been searching the tugboat for bodies off the coast of Nigeria, when a diver saw a man's hand.

Thinking it was a body, the hand moved, and the driver can be heard shouting 'he's alive'.

Mr Okene was the only member of the 12 person crew who survived the sinking.

Once back on terra firma, he was kept in a decompression chamber for 60 hours before allowed to go home to his family.
