port elizabeth - A man who was diving at Port Elizabeth off the coast of South Africa was swallowed by a whale.
It would be a meter-sized Bryde whale. 'There was no time for fear or any emotion,' professional diver Rainer Schimpf tells the Telegraph. 'I immediately knew what was happening. I knew it was a whale that had taken me, and I instinctively held my breath, assuming that he would dive back down and spit me somewhere in the depths of the Indian Ocean. '
