The diver was taken to a local hospital but was discharged a few hours later with no life-threatening injuries.
A scuba diver in Massachusetts was able to get out of the mouth of a humpback whale and reach the shore without serious injuries. This was reported by the local newspaper Cape Cod Times.
According to her, 56-year-old Michael Packard on Friday morning caught lobsters off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean near the city of Provincetown. “All of a sudden, I felt a huge force push, and after that, everything went dark. I felt like I was moving, and the whale was pushing me with the muscles in my mouth,” he told the publication.
At first, Packard thought he had been eaten by a shark, but after finding no teeth in the creature that attacked him and realizing that he had not suffered any serious injuries, the diver realized that he was inside the whale. The diver began to move intensively, after which the whale surfaced, shook its head, and released it. Packard’s partner dragged him onto the boat and took him to the shore. The diver was taken to a local hospital. Doctors, finding no life-threatening injuries, discharged him a few hours later.
