An Australian diver whose abalong boat sank has survived after swimming for almost a day through shark-infested waters clinging to the lid of a portable icebox.

While Howard Rodd,44,was recovering in hospital,police said they were searching for a 47-year-old deckhand missing from the same boat in an area close to where two surfers were killed in separate shark attacks in September.

Rodd’s extraordinary tale of survival began on Monday when his 7m abalone boat overturned in heavy seas in the Great Australian Bight off Ceduna,550km northwest of Adelaide.

Rodd and deckhand Danny Thorpe clung to their boat’s upturned hull for several hours before Rodd decided to swim for shore.

Fearing sharks,Thrope stayed behind wearing two lifejackets as Rodd set off for shore dressed in a wetsuit and flippers and using the icebox lid for extra buoyancy.

Police said strong winds and currents prevented Rodd from reaching a nearby island,so he swam about 27km to reach the mainland.

Rodd was washed ash ore early on Tuesday morning but staggered around lost in bushland,his eyes swollen shut by prolonged exposure to salt.
