Rainer Schimpf is one lucky dude. He was out observing the annual sardine run in South Africa and was nearly eaten alive. The sardines are feasted upon by whales in the region. He was hoping to get some photos of the feast when he was almost became one of the main courses.

A nearly 50 foot whale dived to scoop up some tasty sardines and just missed inhaling Rainer by inches. To top it all off he was then bumped by a shark.Check out the amazing video here.
