While out filming orcas, a scuba diver has a near death experience most people never have to worry about – he almost got swallowed by a 35,000-pound humpback whale. The diver in question was Patrick Dykstra, the owner of Picture Adventure Expeditions in Norway.
“It’s hard to tell from the video, but the whale swerved last minute to avoid hitting me,” he said. “It’s fascinating how something so big and moving so fast could avoid me last minute. They’re incredibly intelligent creatures that know exactly where they are.”
We’d say he’s pretty lucky to not have found out what it’d be like to be a real-life Pinocchio.
