A lobster diver in Massachusetts can now say he survived being swallowed by a whale and lived to tell the tale.
Michael Packard says his modern day tale of Jonah and the Whale happened in a flash as everything turned dark almost in an instant.
“A humpback whale tried to eat me,” Packard told reporters. “I was in his closed mouth for about 30 to 40 seconds before he rose to the surface and spit me out.”
After the ordeal, Packard was taken to a hospital. Luckily he was able to walk away with only minor injuries.
