Watch: Whale Swallows Diver

A South African dive tour operator discovered firsthand what Jonah may have felt like after a whale attempted to swallow him whole. Rainer Schimpf had been attempting to film a sardine run when a Bryde's whale emerged from the deep with its mouth open to gather food. Schimpf became lodged in the mammal's mouth in an instant. "I felt enormous pressure around my waist which is when I guess the whale realized his mistake," he said. Schimpf's stay inside the whale was brief and it released him as it continued to swallow a haul of fish.
