    Fantastic! I remember this story in the news a few months ago. And ending the video with the theme from The Great Escape = Priceless!

    Thanks Andy.

    Incredible! Can you imagine sitting in the dark for 3 days in a pocket of air wondering what to do? I don't know if I would last...

    Being South African the diver's reaction in Afrikaans when he gets grabbed was even funnier to hear

    I recall reading an interview with the rescue diver who said he was shocked, pleasantly so, because they'd assumed it was going to just be a recovery mission.
