Srinagar, 13 June: A lobster diver has said that he felt everything went dark after he was stuck inside the mouth of a humpback whale off the coast of Cape Cod.

Michael Packard, 56, said he was about 14 meters deep in the waters off Princetown in the US when he felt a huge bump and suddenly everything went dark, reported Al Jazeera.

Packard first thought it was a shark attack but unable to feel any teeth and pain, he said, “I then realised that it’s a whale’s mouth and he’s trying to swallow me.” “And I thought to myself this is it, I’m gonna die.”

Patrick said that he was inside the big mammal’s mouth for about 30 seconds on Friday and was able to breathe there due to his breathing apparatus. Then, the humpback surfaced, shook its head and spat him out.
