Two divers were almost eaten by humpback whales. The terrifying, once in a lifetime encounter happened in the water at Souza Rock, two miles from Morro Bay in California, USA
The hungry whales surrounded Shawn Stamback and Francis Antigua and began leaping out of the water. The predators then moved towards the divers as if getting ready for dinner and the men got caught up as the whales emerged.
The 40 ton humpback whales exploded out of the water just inches from Antigua and as they splashed back below the surface the divers quickly rushed back to the safety of their boat. It was indeed a narrow escape from death.
You can watch the whales attacking the divers in the video above.
