Man ‘Surfs’ Dead Whale (Video)

BY Epoch Video TIMENovember 4, 2014 PRINT

A 26-year-old man in Perth, Australia is getting quite a bit of attention after he climbed on top of a dead whale. The daredevil, identified as Harrison Williams, had been out on a boat with friends when he witnessed the carcass floating in the open ocean.

Not long after spotting it, Williams jumped off the side of the boat, swam over to the whale and climbed on its back. He didn’t seem to be fazed by a Great White and several tiger sharks that were swimming around the dead creature.

His friends steered the boat close to the carcass, allowing Williams to jump back onboard. He later spoke to reporters about that stunt, saying he didn’t believe he was in danger because the sharks were too busy munching on the whale.

Police will not issue Williams a fine, because the whale was already dead when he climbed on its back and he didn’t remove any part of the carcass.
