Australian 'idiot' surfs dead whale as sharks circle
Australian Harrison Williams thought 'it would be pretty funny' to risk his life by jumping into shark-infested waters in a bizarre attempt to surf a dead whale
A 26-year-old Australian man who risked his life by diving into shark-infested waters to climb onto a rotting whale carcass has confessed that even his parents think he is an idiot.
Harrison Williams, of Quinns Rock, Perth, was out on a boat off the coast of Fremantle, Western Australia with some friends yesterday when he spotted the dead whale floating in the water.
"One of my mates said it would be pretty funny to surf the whale, so I did it," he told Seven News
Mr Williams was seemingly not put off by the fact that hungry several tiger sharks and a massive great white, were circling around the carcass at the time.
After diving into the water, he climbed on top of the half eaten whale and 'surfed' it until his friends pulled the boat near enough for him to jump back on-board safely. Click me
