Scuba diver tells of fishing-boat rescue

A scuba-diving instructor who rescued a fisherman from a capsized boat Sunday in Australia has shrugged off his new status as "hero," saying he was just doing his job.

One man was killed and 11 others saved when their fishing charter boat was hit by a large wave and overturned.

With no emergency services on the water, the diver swam to the boat from another vessel to search for the two missing men.
