A man in the US has claimed to have been swallowed by a whale!

Michael Packard, a commercial lobster diver, says he was swallowed whole by a humpback whale off the Massachusetts coast on Friday. He thinks he was in the whale’s mouth for about 30 seconds. He was able to breathe because he still had his breathing apparatus on.

“I was completely inside (the whale); it was completely black,” he added. “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.”

In an effort to save himself, Packard said he began shaking the whale’s head before the animal surfaced and ejected him.

Packard spent two days in hospital recovering and expects to be back at work soon.

Scientist said that humpback whales are not aggressive animals, especially toward humans.

That does not seem true. Whales don’t swallow people whole. It must of been a accident.

I highly doubt that a whale ate him deliberately because they only eat planktonic animals

this is probably not true because whales cannot swallow anything bigger than a beach ball.
