A commercial lobster divers, cheated death, and after nearly being swallowed by a humpback whale off the coast of Cape Cod, Mass., on Friday morning.
Michael Packard, to survive, even for a half a minute to go in the right whale's mouth, before the sea-mammals - "dig me out," he wrote in an Provincetown community Facebook page.
"A humpback whale was trying to eat me," Hp, 56, wrote. "I had a closed mouth, for about 30 to 40 seconds, before he went up to the surface and then spit it out to me. I am very, very much bruised, but no broken bones."

In his speech, he thanked the first responders, from Provincetown to pull him out of the water.
The father of two young boys, between the ages of 12 and 16 and returned home to his family on Friday afternoon, after he was released from the Cape Cod Hospital with injuries of the knee and soft-tissue damage, and Hp said.
He told NBC Boston that he was in the hummer's diving in 45 feet of water, and when he felt like a truck hit me, and it was in a dark place.
He is, in the first place, he thought, that he had been attacked by a shark, that are commonly found in surface water, but then I realized that he didn't feel the teeth in, and he wasn't in any pain.
"And then," I said, " Oh, my God, my God, I'm out of the mouth of a whale with his mouth,'" Packard told NBC Boston that he struggled to find his breath again when you are in the right whale's mouth.
"I'm just going to run out of air and suffocate? Going to have to swallow it for me?" This is exactly how you're going to have to go by Myself." This is exactly how you're going to die, at the mouth of the whale," Hp believed that it was.
However, the whale, it will pop-up, shakes her head, and then spit it out.
"I had just moved out of his mouth and into the water. It was just a white, water, everywhere," Packard, who had been rescued by a crew mate on the surface of the boat, it said.
Charles "Stormy" Mayo, senior scientist, and a whale expert at the Center for coastal Studies in Provincetown, told the Cape Cod Times, which is a human-whale encounters are very rare.
Humpback whales are not aggressive, and in May, it was a chance meeting, while the whale was feeding on the fish, it is likely to be the in the sand.
