An Australian scuba diver swam 16km in the Indian Ocean overnight to reach the shore after being separated from his boat on Thursday (10 November) evening. The boat had drifted away after the anchor rope snapped.
The incident took place when 46-year-old Gene McClymans and another man were diving between Little African Reef and Big African Reef off the Geraldton coast on Thursday. He was finally rescued after eight hours from a nearby beach.
