In the deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean off the Tonga coast, a baby whale swam straight towards this scuba diver. As it did, he realized to his horror that he was in danger as he was now inadvertently between the baby whale and its massive 15 meter, 35 ton mother. Luckily, he managed to escape unharmed, but did manage to capture footage of the incredible up-close encounter.
