A humpback whale swallows a lobster diver man whole alive and spits him out. Fortunately, the man survived. The incident took place in Cape Cod in Massachusetts, USA. Thankfully, the 56-year-old man named Michael Packard lives to tell the tale after the mammal spat him back out.

“Oh my God, I’m in a whale’s mouth and he’s trying to swallow me. I thought to myself, ‘Hey, this is it. I’m finally going to die. There is no getting out of here,’’ Michael Packard told a local news station. After the whale swallows this man it spits him back out, what a miracle!

He was 45ft down off Race Point in search of lobsters when the feeding whale, presumed to be a juvenile, took him. He said he “felt this huge bump and everything went dark”. At first, the fisherman assumed he had been attacked by a great white shark but he could find no teeth. “It was happening so fast,” Packard said. “My only thought was how to get out of that mouth.”

“I realized there was no overcoming a beast of that size. He was going to do with me what he wanted to do. He was going to spit me out or swallow me.” Later, during the half-minute ordeal, Packard said, he began to consider his situation more clearly, “Here I am, I’m breathing air. Am I going to be breathing air in this whale’s mouth until it runs out? Crazy stuff.”

“All of a sudden he went up to the surface and just erupted and started shaking his head. I just got thrown in the air and landed in the water,” Packard recalled. “I was free and I just floated there. I couldn’t believe … I’m here to tell it.”
