This video comes to us from Double Point Island, off the coast of Queensland, Australia, and it shows a snorkeler miss getting crushed to death by a breaching whale by mere inches. The snorkelers are investigating a group of feeding whales, when one of the whales suddenly breached, and nearly landed on one of the snorkelers. The impact of the whale hitting the water sent the snorkeler flying through the water, and knocked one of his flippers off, so it’s clear he is lucky to have escaped the encounter with his life. Imagine your family explaining your death in this manner to their coworkers.
Wife: “Yeah, my husband was killed in a horrible snorkeling accident…” Coworker “What? I am so sorry! What happened? Did he drown? Get swept out to sea in a rip current? Get struck by a boat propeller? Wait, he was off the coast of Australia, was it a shark attack?” Wife “Actually he was snorkeling too close to a group of feeding whales, one of the whales jumped and landed on him, he was crushed. Million to one shot. So…we are a pro-whaling family now. All oil lamp lighting in our house. Also Free Willy is banned.”
This was unintentional on whale’s part, but since an animal nearly murdered a human in this video, we here at SportSmasher.com are grouping this video with other animal attacks. For More Animal Attacks CLICK HERE:
