Michael Packard, from Massachusetts says he was swallowed by a huge whale and didn’t think he’ll come back alive. The whale is almost 60,000lbs.
Michael is a Lobster diver, 56 years old. He says that he feared he was going to die after a humpback whale mistakenly took him for food and attempted to swallow him whole. He was attacked in the Cape Cod area, as the place is famous for shark attacks he thought that he was being attacked by a shark. And he noticed that he didn’t feel any teeth.
The incident happened on a Friday, he was 45ft down the sea. After awhile he felt a huge hump and everything went dark.
In WBZ-TV News, he said, “Then I realized, oh my God, I’m in a whale’s mouth… and he’s trying to swallow me, This is it, I’m gonna die.”
Michael was inside the whale’s mouth for like 30 seconds but he was able to breath because of his equipment.
He said, “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. I was free and I just floated there. I couldn’t believe – I’m here to tell it.”
He says that his last thoughts were about his wife and children but fortunately got rescued by a crew mate in the boat. Finally he ended up getting his treatments done in the Cape Cod Hospital.
He uploaded a post on Facebook, “Hi everyone. I just want to clarify what happened to me today. I was lobster diving and a humpback whale tried to eat me. I was in his closed mouth for about 30 to 40 seconds before he rose to the surface and spit me out. I am very bruised up but have no broken bones.”
