It's a close encounter of the HUGE kind. Two humpback whales chasing a school of fish, nearly swallow a pair of divers. They caught the moment on camera, and the video is going viral. But what was it like to be there? Anderson speaks with Shawn Stamback and Francis Antigua, who share more amazing video of the event.
From listening to these two guys talk about the experience, it's clear they know nothing about any of the marine life involved. This is typical behavior for whales rounding up anchovies... they do not come out of the water far enough to be worried about being hit by tails. Seeing the seals, dolphin, and birds all hunting in one spot should have been the first clue to get the heck out of the water... unless you want to be part of the omelet.
