Man Escapes Whale's Mouth

51-year-old Rainer Schimpf was snorkeling near Port Elizabeth Harbour, South Africa when he was sucked headfirst into a Bryde’s whale’s mouth during a sardine feeding frenzy. He said “There was no time for fear or any emotion,I knew instantly what had happened. I knew that a whale had come and taken me and I instinctively held my breath, assuming that it would dive down again and spit me out somewhere in the depths of the Indian Ocean.” Luckily that didnt happen, the whale released its jaw, allowing him to slip free to the surface. Schimpf said “It was an interesting experience for me but surely nothing I’d like to do again, I don’t think I had a whale of a time, but I now have the inside knowledge of a whale which nobody else has.”
