A diver from the USA was swallowed by a humpback whale, but he survived.
A man caught lobsters on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast on the morning of June 11, 2021.
But suddenly pitch darkness surrounded him.
“Suddenly I felt this strong push, and then it was completely dark. I felt that I was moving, and like a whale pushing me through the muscles in the mouth”.
At first, the man thought that he was attacked by a shark, but not finding teeth from the unknown creature and realizing that he didn’t receive any serious injuries, the diver realized that he was inside the whale.
“I was completely inside. It was completely dark. I thought: no chance that I will get out of here. That’s it, I’m a dead man,” the man shared.
Then he began to move actively. The whale ducked to the surface, shook his head, and released him.
Inside the whale, according to the man, he stayed for about half a minute. His partner saw him on the surface of the water, dragged him into the boat, and took him to shore.
The diver was taken to a local hospital. Doctors, not finding life-threatening injuries, discharged him a few hours later.
