Aussie Daredevil Interrupts Shark Feast; Gets Away With It

This man surfed a dead whale while surrounded by a bunch of sharks. What an idiot!

The Australian man who jumped on to a floating whale carcass while being surrounded by killer sharks has admitted it was a stupid of him to risk his life and that even his mother thinks he is an idiot.

The 26-year-old Harrison Williams was on a boating trip with friends in Western Australia when they came across a massive carcass of a whale floating on the surface of the water. Without giving it a second thought, he dived into the sea and hopped on to the dead mammal, thinking it will bring a good laugh to the group.

But then someone noticed that the carcass is surrounded by a group of sharks who are all devouring on the rotting flesh. Having realizing that the only thing standing between him and the man-eaters was the carcass, he immediately went back to his boat.

The entire incident was caught on tape by a news channel helicopter hovering above, bringing international spotlight on Williams' insane stunt.

Thanks to the press his act has received, now even his parents know how close he came to a bunch of deadly sharks. When asked by Seven News if he would do it again, Williams said: "Definitely not (wouldn’t do it again) ... I’ve done it, I don’t need to do it again. Definitely it was a stupid act, didn’t mean to disrespect anyone, mum thinks I’m an idiot, dad’s not too proud either."
