While Harrison Okene was pulled from his ship's wreckage earlier this summer, footage of the dramatic rescue has recently been released.
South African divers probing the tugboat's capsized wreckage only expected to pull bodies out of the water.
When one of them saw Okene's hand emerge from the murky water inside the ship, the diver cried out "He's alive! He's alive!" and they realized this was no ordinary expedition.
Harrison Okene, the ship's cook, had been trapped inside a 4-foot pocket of air for over 60 hours in the freezing water wearing only his underwear. He survived on Coca-Cola.
