The Jascon 4 tug capsized on May 26, 2013 off the coast of Nigeria with only one survivor from 12 people on board. Now, six months on from the accident, incredible footage has emerged showing the moment the ship’s cook was rescued from an air bubble on the ship, two days after the ship capsized. From 20 seconds a member of the DCN Diving rescue team exclaims as the sole survivor’s hand comes into view, Okene Harrison was visibly shaken, but alive.
