51-year-old South African diver Rainer Schimpf was in the ocean documenting the natural sardine run off Port Elizabeth Harbour.
While the deep sea diver was swimming with the Sardines he felt the water around him churning.
Thats when he and the sardines around him were all swallowed by a massive Bryde Whale.
The whale later spat him out and he was able to survive and swim back to safety as his camera crew filmed in complete shock.
Rainer Schimpf told Barcroft TV:
“I could feel the pressure on my hip, there is no time for fear in a situation like that – you have to use your instinct. Nothing can actually prepare you for the event when you end up inside the whale – it’s pure instinct. I held my breath because I thought he is going to dive down and release me much deeper in the ocean, it was pitch black inside.”
