Swimmer survives surfing on dead whale surrounded by hungry sharks


A swimmer in Australia pulled off an incredibly dangerous stunt involving the floating carcass of a dead whale and two hungry great white sharks, and lived to tell the tale.

A 26-year-old man risked his life by jumping into the water and climbing on the whale while two sharks were gorging themselves on its flesh.

“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,” Harrison said.

Harrison says it wasn’t until he was on top of the whale that he realized how dangerous what he’d just done was and he says looking back on it it’s something he would never do again.
