An Australian man who leapt into shark-infested waters and climbed atop a floating whale carcass, so he could balance on it like a surfboard, now admits it probably wasn’t the brightest idea.
Harrison Williams spotted the sharks — including a great white — before he jumped into the water, he told a reporter from the Seven Network, a CNN affiliate. Video of the bizarre incident shows Williams, 26, swimming up to the whale carcass as the silhouettes of two massive sharks circle nearby.
“He was too busy chomping on the whale so wasn’t too bad,” Williams explained.
Asked if he thought he might be a “bloody idiot,” Williams said, “Yeah” and added that his family wasn’t too thrilled with the decision either. “Mum thinks I’m an idiot, dad’s not too proud either.”
