A survivor's tale
He is the only survivor of a deadly helicopter crash - and today he is speaking about his escape.
Robert Decker is testifying at an inquiry looking into helicopter safety.
On March 12, the Cougar helicopter carrying him and 17 other offshore workers crashed into the ocean about 55 kilometres off the coast of St. John's, Newfoundland.
This is the first time Decker is talking publicly about his ordeal.
His lawyer says "he will describe the flight back towards land, the crash of the helicopter into the ocean, his escape and ascent to the surface."
Vik Adhopia is at the inquiry and will have the incredible story.
