According to the Cape Cod Times, a veteran lobster diver was swallowed BY A F*CKING WHALE during a morning lobster dive today.
Michael Packard, already on his second dive of the day near Herring Cove Beach, in Provincetown, Massachusetts, was picking up lobsters near the bottom of the ocean floor when all of the sudden, the light went out.
Underwater, a huge push, and pitch black… he was swallowed by a humpback whale.
“All of a sudden, I felt this huge shove and the next thing I knew it was completely black.
I could sense I was moving, and I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth.”
At first, he thought he was in the mouth of a great white shark, but lucky for him, he was still on one piece. He quickly realized it must be a whale.
“I was completely inside. It was completely black. I thought to myself, ‘there’s no way I’m getting out of here. I’m done, I’m dead.’ All I could think of was my boys… they’re 12 and 15 years old.”
But just like Jonah (well, not exactly), the whale spit him out.
“I saw light, and he started throwing his head side to side, and the next thing I knew I was outside.”
In the video, you can see that Packard is visibly shaken from in the incident, and who wouldn’t be? I mean, you just got swallowed by A F*CKING WHALE!? And since he had scuba gear on, he probably could’ve survived in there until his oxygen tank ran out.
Man, what a shit way to die.
One minute you’re diving, the next minute, you’re entombed inside a whale, essentially buried alive, just waiting die…
All in all, Packard estimates he was in the whale for about 30-40 seconds, but had enough oxygen to survive another 30 minutes.
