NIGERIA (WKRC) -- Incredible new video of a capsized tugboat rescue.

Divers were expecting to find only dead bodies in the wreckage at the bottom of the ocean.

The controller thinks at first they've just found a body. Until the hand reaches out and grabs the diver.

This rescue happened nearly three days after the tugboat capsized off the coast of Nigeria in May.

The man, who was the boat's chef, survived for two-and-a- half days in a four-foot air pocket living on sips of Coca-Cola.
