A 56-year-old Spanish fisherman has a bizarre story to tell. Luigi Marquez was reported missing at sea after being thrown off his vessel during a violent sea storm. He was presumed dead after coastal guards found no signs of him during the search which lasted for days.

Marquez claims he was swallowed by a whale — inside which he spent three days and three nights before being eventually flushed out. “This great beast swallowed me the morning after the storm,” he told local reporters, according to World News Daily Report. “It is the most frightening thing I have ever lived. Everything was pitch black and I was shivering cold.” A visibly shaken Marquez recounted his survival strategy, “The only thing that kept me alive were the raw fish I ate and the light from my waterproof watch — that is how I kept in touch with time. And the smell, I will never forget that horrible stench of putrid decomposition. I had to wash for three days before the odor went away.”

If you think his story is one-of-a-kind survival tale, you’ll be surprised to know such incidents are not all that uncommon. “It is not the first time in human history that such stories arise. Only last year, two scuba divers off the coast of Portugal lived the same story after being accidentally swallowed by a blue whale. Fortunately, they were immediately expelled of the giant mammal’s body,” marine biologist Juan Cristobal Miguel, at the University of San Petrina, pointed out. “It is surely extraordinary that this man survived in the belly of a blue whale for so long, he is obviously a very sturdy man and extremely lucky,” he added.

For now, Marquez and his family are happy with the miracle. “This is truly a miracle! Saint Mary of Jesus has heard our prayers” Marquez’s wife, Penelope, said to local reporters. “I prayed and I prayed and I never lost faith and the Lord has brought me back my precious Luigi,” she said, teary-eyed.
