LOBSTER DIVER SURVIVES BEING SWALLOWED BY WHALE
Massachusetts lobster diver survives being swallowed by whale: ‘I was completely inside’
‘I was completely inside (the whale); it was completely black,’ he said.
A commercial lobster diver says he was swallowed whole by a whale off the Massachusetts coast Friday but made it out alive with only minor injuries following the life and death encounter.
Michael Packard, 56, of Wellfleet, was released hours later from a Cape Cod hospital following his scary encounter with a humpback whale. He told WBZ-TV he was 45 feet deep in the waters off Provincetown when the attack occurred.
He initially thought the whale was a shark but realized he was wrong when he didn’t feel any teeth or pain.
