Man jumps on shark-infested whale carcass for laughs

Man jumps on shark-infested whale carcass for laughs

Harrison Williams, 26, was spending the day boating with friends near Perth, Australia, when he made a spur-of-the-moment decision to jump into shark-infested waters and climb atop the rotting whale carcass the deadly predators were feeding on.

While it is extremely dangerous to approach feeding sharks, Williams didn't think twice.

"I was out on a boat with the boys and one of them said it would be pretty funny if I surfed a whale so I just did it," Williams said. Asked if he would do it again, he replied: "Definitely not...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."

Glad that's settled. --Samantha Rollins
