This Man Was Swallowed Alive By A Whale... And Made It Out To Tell The Tale

A video of a South African diver getting swallowed by a whale went viral on Youtube. Just four days after its release, the video has already been viewed more than 6 million times. Check out the video above to see the harrowing scene unfold!

These images were 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 (...)

Indeed, the diver was incredibly lucky and his wife, who witnessed the scene, is perfectly aware of that. Talk about a scene straight from Pinocchio come to life, right? Check out the video above to see the incredible footage for yourself!
