According to

Dive tour operator Rainer Schimpf was documenting a sardine run in February off the coast of South Africa when something unexpected and terrified happened: Schimpf was sucked into the mouth of a whale and then spat out, and the whole thing was caught on camera.

Photographer Heinz Toperczer was photographing Schimpf at work when his rapid-fire series of shots captured the incident as it unfolded. Schimpf’s and Toperczer’s accounts of the encounter, as well as photos and videos, can be seen in the 4-minute video above by Barcroft Animals.
