This Man Swallowed Alive By A Whale But Miraculously Survived

A video of a South African diver getting swallowed by a whale went viral on Youtube amassing millions of views. The footage paints a harrowing picture but fortunately has a happy ending.

The video was taken off Port Elizabeth, South Africa. As you'll see in the video above, a diver was in the middle of a school of fish when a whale caught him, as he explains in the original video: "I had started filming dolphins, sharks, gannets, penguins and cormorants that were feeding on sardines when, from the depths, a Bryde's whale suddenly appeared, swallowing everything in its path."

In this testimony to AFP, Rainer Schimpf, an environmental advocate, recounted how he experienced this traumatic experience: "I felt some pressure around my waist, I immediately knew what was happening (...) It was only a few seconds before the whale realized its mistake and opened its mouth to spit me out."
