Man Survives Three Days in a Sunken Boat

A few years ago, Harrison Okene worked as a cook on a large tugboat off the coast of Nigeria. 

On May 26, 2013, while towing an oil tanker, a huge wave snapped the cable to the oil tanker and capsized the tug boat, which quickly sunk to a depth of 98 feet and remained upside-down on the ocean floor.  The other crew all drowned in the ship. But Okene was in the washroom at the time, which saved his life.

Okene managed to get to the engineer’s office, where he found a small pocket of air, and it was here that he managed to survive for three days, praying, as he heard the sharks feeding on his crewmates’ bodies.

Okene was discovered by South African divers who were hired to investigate the scene and recover the bodies.  Here is a photo they took when they found Okene.  (photo)

Pretty scary stuff.  Are you going through any difficult times?  Are they worse than what Okene went through?

It’s nothing short of God’s miracle that Okene survived, but it does show us the power of God to rescue!

My friend, God hasn’t forgotten you.  He knows all about your situation, and He has all the power to rescue you and deliver you.

A great comfort to our hearts is 2Tim. 1:12 “… for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Yes, God knows and cares for you.
