If you fell into a black hole, you would not survive… the gravity in the black hole would pull you thinner and thinner until you’d merge with the black hole.

The truth is that although science has allowed us to make huge strides forward in our understanding of the universe there are limits to what we know.
One of these limits is any real knowledge or understanding of the inside of a black hole. As far as our mathematical understanding goes, nothing, including light, can escape from the inside of a black hole. It is this prediction of the inability of light to escape the huge gravitational force of a black hole which gave rise to its name.
The good news is that you do not need to worry about how to survive the inside of the black hole. In practice your body would be stretched and torn apart and you would have ceased to exist before you ever crossed the event horizon, the name we give to the edge of the black hole.
