An Australian man has been filmed jumping from his friend’s boat and swimming to a dead whale surrounded by hungry sharks.
The video footage showed what appeared to be several large great white sharks feeding on the whale.
The man in the film was identified by local media as Harrison Williams, of Quinns Rock, north of Perth.
“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,” he was quoted as saying.
