Lobster Diver Survives After Being Swallowed By A Humpback Whale

A professional lobster diver who was swallowed by a humpback whale off the coast of Cape Cod, survived the scary incident after the mammal spat him back out.

Michael Packard, 56, was about 45 feet deep in the waters off Provincetown on Friday, June 11, when he “felt a huge bump, and everything went dark”.

According to him, he thought he had been attacked by a shark but later realized that he could not feel any teeth and he was not in any pain.

“All of a sudden, I felt this huge shove and the next thing I knew it was completely black,” Packard recalled Friday afternoon following his release from Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis. “I could sense I was moving, and I could feel the whale squeezing with the muscles in his mouth.”

“I was completely inside; it was completely black,” Packard said. “I thought to myself, ‘there’s no way I’m getting out of here. I’m done, I’m dead.’ All I could think of was my boys — they’re 12 and 15 years old.”

Mr.Michael said he believes he was in the whale’s mouth for about 30 seconds but continued to breathe because he still had his breathing apparatus in.

Luckily for him, the whale shook its head and spat him out before it he was rescued by his crewmate in the surface boat.

“I saw light, and he started throwing his head side to side, and the next thing I knew I was outside (in the water),” said Packard, who lives in Wellfleet.

His sister, Cynthia Packard, originally told the Cape Cod Times that her brother broke a leg, but he said later that his legs are just bruised.

Charles “Stormy” Mayo, a senior scientist and whale expert at the Centre for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, told the newspaper that such human-whale encounters are unusual.

Humpbacks are not aggressive and Dr. Mayo speculated it was an accidental encounter while the whale was feeding on fish, likely sand lance.

Humpback whales can weigh about 36 tons and grow to as long as 50ft (15m).

A young woman who used to express her strong belief in feminism has finally swallowed the humble pie and made a U-turn after realizing that her life is gradually becoming miserable because men do not come her way anymore.

In a video fast going viral, the lady is seen weeping bitterly about how she has become frustrated and does not want to be a feminist any longer.

According to the lady, she has become very grumpy in recent times and easily gets jealous when she sees married couples.

“I’m so sad right now, I just came to a realization as this at few days has been so hard for me. you know how men say women have toxic feminism and that you will get to a certain stage and nobody will love you. I’ve gotten to that stage and I missed out on everything,” she said in part.

She further indicated that she’s desperately looking forward to settling down with any man who will propose to her.

Whether rich or poor, tall or short, handsome or ugly she is just ready to start a family.

“I’m just so desperate for a husband because of the pressure around me. So if you can DM and propose I will be happy and marry you immediately. I will wash your clothes, cook for you. I will have your children and be an obedient and a submissive wife because that is what men want,” she added.
