This Is The End
This is when things began to get crazy. Instead of just going right by her, the whale swam directly at her, until she was practically on its head while it was swimming, dragging her along to wherever it was going. Hauser later explained the encounter in an interview, stating that “instead of swimming past me, he came right toward me and he didn’t stop coming towards me until I was on his head.”
Only having a snorkel and camera at this time, Hauser was completely unprepared for this crazy situation, and soon found herself on top of the whales head, which is when she really began to panic. Her cameraman was also with her in the water, but had no idea how to handle this situation, having never seen a whale behave like this before.
