A real life Jonah And The Whale Story!

This is just crazy!  A man diving off the coast of South Africa was swallowed by a large whale — and lived to tell about it.

His name is Rainer Schimpf and he’s 51-year-old and he’s super lucky to be alive. He was diving with a camera crew when the huge, 20-ton Bryde’s whale breached the surface with its mouth open and swallowed him.

The camera crew caught the video and you can see him INSIDE the whales mouth!
