American fisherman returns alive after being swallowed by a whale!

صياد أمريكي يعود حياً بعد أن ابتلعه حوت!

News Agencies

A Massachusetts man had a whale of a tale to tell Friday — though it’s one plenty of people thought was more of a fish tale.

But Cape Cod commercial lobster diver Michael Packard’s injuries and his diving mate’s own account back Packard’s story that he was briefly swallowed by a humpback whale off the coast of Cape Cod.

He recounted the harrowing — and painful — moment he realized that he was in the closed mouth of one of the world’s biggest creatures. Experts said the encounter was rare, and likely a complete accident.

Packard was in about 45 feet of water when “I just felt this truck hit me and everything just went dark,” he said.

At first he thought he’d been eaten by a white shark — the feared sharks have become fixtures off the coast of Cape Cod in the summer — then he realized it didn’t have teeth: “I said, ‘Oh my god, I’m in the mouth of a whale.'”

Packard’s crew mate Josiah Mayo was driving the boat and following him on his dive.

“It was just a huge splash and kind of thrashing around,” said Mayo. “I saw Michael kind of pop up within the mess and the whale disappeared.”

Harbormaster Don German said at first he didn’t believe what he was hearing when he got the call about the incident.

“Honestly, we all kind of thought, ‘OK, this is far fetched,’ but then, when we got word from the injured gentleman, we realized it was an actual incident.”

What It’s Like Inside a Whale
Packard had been faced with an immediate struggle in the hard, shaking mouth of the whale, as his breathing regulator came out of his mouth and he had to find it. Then, as the seconds ticked by, Packard thought, “This is how you’re going to die. In the mouth of a whale.”

He didn’t know if he would be swallowed or suffocate, he said, and he thought about his 12- and 16-year-old sons, wife, mother and family. “I just was struggling but I knew this was this massive creature, there was no way I was going to bust myself out of there,” Packard recalled.

Then, suddenly, Packard saw light, felt the whale shaking its head and was thrown out of the water.

“I was just laying on the surface floating and saw his tail and he went back down, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I got out of that, I survived,'” he said.

His sister, Cynthia Packard had told the Cape Cod Times that Packard was taken to Cape Cod Hospital with at least one broken leg after the encounter Friday morning.

“What a way to become a celebrity, huh?” his mother said as he gingerly sat down to speak with reporters Friday afternoon.

Do Whales Ever Eat People?
Charles “Stormy” Mayo, a senior scientist and whale expert at the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, told the Cape Cod Times that such human-whale encounters are rare.

Rare video of two Northern Atlantic Right Whales seeming to hug it out on the surface of Cape Cod Bay is just what you need to see today.

Dr. Jooke Robbins, who directs the center’s humpback research, agreed, saying in a statement released Friday that whales feed by lunging through the water, mouths wide open, to engulf schools of fish and then filter the water through their baleen.

“If something lies directly in the path of a lunge feeding humpback whale, the whale might not always be able to detect it or avoid it in time,” he said. “For example, some entanglements in fishing gear begin this way and can threaten the life of the whale.”


في قصة أغرب من الخيال، قال صياد في ولاية ماساتشوستس الأمريكية إنه نجا من موت محتم بعدما “ابتلعه” حوت أحدب لفترة وجيزة قبل أن يقذفه حياً في المحيط.

وأوضح الصياد الأمريكي مايكل باكارد أنهكان – وفق ما نقلته الإذاعة الألمانية عن صحيفة “كايب كود تايمز” – إنه كان يغطس بغرض اصطياد الروبيان عندما حاول حوت أحدب التهامه.

وقال باكارد: “بقيت في فمه المغلق مدة 30 إلى 40 ثانية، قبل أن يصعد إلى السطح ويقذفني”.

وأشار الصياد إلى أن جسده مليء بالكدمات، إلا أن قبضة الحوت لم تتسبب في كسر أي من عظامه، كما شكر باكارد فرق الإغاثة بمدينة بروفينستاون “لعنايتهم ومساعدتهم” لدى إدخاله المستشفى لفترة وجيزة.

وردا على سؤال لقناة “سي بي إس إن بوسطن” المحلية الأمريكية، أوضح باكارد أنه كان يغطس على عمق حوالى 13 مترا عندما “شعر فجأة بضربة قوية وتحول كل شيء للون الأسود”.

وظن الصياد في بادئ الأمر أنه تعرض لهجوم من سمكة قرش، لكنه ظل قادرا على التنفس بفضل جهاز الغطس الذي كان بحوزته ولم يكن يشعر بأي ألم ناجم عن عضة قرش، “وعندها أدرك ما يحصل”.

وأضاف باكارد: “كنت أفكر في أنني سأموت. فكرت في أطفالي وزوجتي وفي أن الخروج من هنا مستحيل”. ولكن فجأة عاد الحوت إلى السطح وبدأ تحريك رأسه وقذف الصياد في الهواء ليهبط في المياه ويخرج سالما”، على حد وصفه.

ويقول زميله جوسايا مايو إنه قام بسحبه والاتصال بعناصر الإغاثة طلبا للدعم.
