Man sits on whale carcass surrounded by sharks

A man has found himself stranded on top of a dead whale carcass surrounded by sharks.

West Australian man Harrison Williams ditched his boat and swam over to sit on top of the dead whale, which at the time he thought was injured.

Meanwhile it’s understood several sharks were swimming around the carcass near Rottnest Island, including a tiger shark and great white.


The Seven News helicopter caught all the action as the man sat atop the deceased whale yesterday afternoon.

The man eventually made it back to his boat without any further incident.
