In what is an exceedingly rare incident, a commercial lobster diver was seriously injured Friday morning when he was caught in the mouth of a humpback whale feeding near a beach, his sister said.
Michael Packard, 56, is at Cape Cod Hospital with at least one broken leg, Cynthia Packard said.
“He was swallowed by the whale, he was in his mouth for about 20 seconds,” Cynthia Packard said in a phone interview Friday morning. . .
“There was all this action at the top of the water,” Packard said Mayo told her. Then the whale released her brother.
The call came in a little before 8 a.m. ET that a diver had suffered serious injuries to the legs after interacting with a whale. Provincetown Fire Chief Michael Trovato said he did not go to the call but confirmed that he heard that the diver had been injured by a whale.
