Watch: Diver is Accidentally Swallowed by Whale

A South African diver is lucky to be alive after a whale accidentally swallowed him whole while skimming the water for food.

The incident occurred off of the coast of Port Elizabeth while the 51-year-old diver, Rainier Schrimpf, was filming the wildlife in the area with his crew.

Schrimpf  says he and his crew were in the water just filming the marine life migration in the area when suddenly he found himself in the mouth of a 15-ton Bryde’s Whale. The whale thankfully let go of Schrimpf once it dived back under water but the crew admits the whole thing was pretty scary.
