    Two divers were exploring waters off Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, when a whale calf bellyflopped onto one of them. The incredible moment was captured on video, which has gone viral.

    This teen diver had a narrow escape from a very close encounter with a female whale and her calf. Imagine a boat or a car collapsing on you — this is comparable to what he experienced when the baby whale crashed onto him, hitting his leg and sucking him underwater. According to the diver, it was still the best experience he will remember for the rest of his life.
