Michael Packard is a commercial lobster diver who works off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. His work week ended a little differently than most of us would imagine when he was nearly swallowed by a humpback whale!
He survived for 40 seconds in the whale's mouth before the giant animal "spit me out," he posted on Facebook.
"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."
He was released from the hospital Friday afternoon with a dislocated knee and soft tissue damage.
He told NBC that he was diving in 45 feet of water when he "felt this truck hit me and everything went dark." He thought he had been attacked by a shark but knew it was something else when he couldn't feel any teeth.
"I said 'Oh my God, I'm in the mouth of a whale!"
Could you IMAGINE!
