Yeah I couldn't even imagine being in that situation. He had to be 100% sure that he was going to die down there.

Yeah, complete darkness, surrounded by water. It must have seemed like months sitting down there.

I feel like most people would have tried to swim out as the boat was going down and drown. It's crazy how he seemed so calm about it, I feel like I would have been crying about being cold/wet/hungry/thirsty/tired/getmethefuckoutofthisplace/etc. It'd be interesting to hear his story of what happened.

You can hear the shock in that divers voice when the hand comes out of the darkness. God DAMN that's crazy.

I wonder if his thoughts during the whole ordeal was how to turn the situation into a great spam email.

Dear Sirs or Madame,

I write this message upon you in order to bereave you to the fact that I am near death trapped in an air bubble when my ship went down.

I would like to wire my life's savings to you immediately, a sum of $41,134,906 US dollars (Average Nigerian cook wage,) for I know it will be in good hands. Please send me all your personal information immediately to ensure and establish a smooths transactions that will benefit us both.

Thank you, God bless, Lord Always, Jesus is King, All praise the Jehovah,

Gordonese Ramseyala"
