“ Lobster diver survives brief entrapment inside whale's mouth “

‘ Michael Packard, 56, of Wellfleet, Mass., told WBZ-TV after he was released from Cape Cod Hospital that he was about 14 metres deep in the waters off Provincetown, Mass., when "all of a sudden I felt this huge bump, and everything went dark."

He thought he had been attacked by a shark, common in area waters, but then realized he could not feel any teeth and he wasn't in any pain.

"Then I realized, oh my God, I'm in a whale's mouth ... and he's trying to swallow me," he said. "And I thought to myself OK, this is it — I'm finally — I'm going to die." His thoughts went to his wife and children.

He estimates he was in the whale's mouth for about 30 seconds, but continued to breathe because he still had his breathing apparatus in.

Then the whale surfaced, shook its head, and spit him out. He was rescued by his crewmate in the surface boat. ‘

So many questions

If sharks are common, he was in the water because WHY?

And how would he realize what it’s like to be inside a whale’s mouth?

Related to the last question, was he really thinking of <anything> other than, “Get me the EFF outta here!” Did he somehow have time to potentially construct a text message, take notes, or just ponder it all?

He's a commercial lobster diver, it's his job. He said he was in the whale for 30sec. I bet it seemed like 30sec, but I bet it was shorter. It wouldn't take long to start having your life flash before you, etc., I would think. I bet he started thrashing around like nobody's business. I'm sure the whale was like, wtf. Bleh, this is not a plankton.

It's become quite common to see whales off of P-town these days in the correct season. I've been on a whale watch boat there and it was hard to keep track of all the whales about. I'm sure it was more so some centuries ago, but it's amazingly common now.
