(VIDEO) Australian Man Surfs On Dead Whale, Almost Gets Eaten By Sharks.
Aussies are known for being a little wild. Well this Australian man did something that none of us would probably ever think of doing.
Harrison Williams from Perth, Western Australia, saw a dead whale carcass out on the ocean. He then decided he would jump in the water and attempt to ride the decomposing animal.
What Williams didn’t know however, was that there were great white sharks feasting on the whale as he swam towards it.
Luckily for him the sharks were too busy with their meal to pay him any attention. “[I was] out on the boat with the boys and one of my mates thought it’d be pretty funny if I surfed the whale, so I just did it,” Williams told the Seven Network.
At the time him and his friends didn’t know that there were sharks in the water, but Williams says that he wasn’t too concerned even after he saw the sharks.
His friend drove the boat over to him to rescue him off of the whale. Williams says that he regrets his decision now and, as to be expected, his parents are furious with him.
“Mum thinks I’m an idiot, Dad’s not too proud either,” Williams said. “[I’m] pretty grateful to still be alive.” Luckily he wasn’t charged with any criminal charges either.
