This man survived in the whale belly as the Biblical Jonah
This man is a survivor of a great storm. He was missing for three days, but his wife never lost the hope of his rescue. The man reappeared and what he says is hard to believe.
He had a great encounter in the sea. Some great fish approached him and swallowed up just like the Biblical Johan. Inside there was awful smell and rotten pieces of fish. The guy had a waterproof watch on and a small flashlight. He kept track of time and ate some raw fish from the monster’s guts.
After the rescue, he had to do some washing to get rid of the stench. Later on, when the beast got rid of the man, he turned his pants into a life-saving vest and kept on hoping.
Marine scientists say this is not an extraordinary story. It happens time to time. Last year two divers were swallowed by a blue whale, but the best spit them out right away. Blue whales are huge and can easily swallow up a person. However, this man is very lucky to survive, and he is a very tough person too. He never gave up on life and hung on there for 3 days! What a miracle!
