New, raw video of the man who climbed atop the carcass of a dead whale amid shark infested waters has emerged, along with footage of the massive great white that was lurking nearby.

Harrison Williams, 26, garnered international attention last week, when he was filmed “surfing” on the carcass of a dead whale off the coast of Rottnest Island in Western Australia. As the Inquisitr noted, the whale was surrounded by several tiger sharks, and at least one great white, drawn to the area by the easy prey.

New video of Williams’ whale-surfing stunt has now come to light, filmed from another boat circling the area, according to Shark Attack News. Astonishingly, the men recording the footage are actually discussing the large sharks feeding on the whale when they observe Williams jump into the water, swim to the carcass and climb on top. Posted to YouTube by Brad Witt, the video reveals the other boaters’ disbelief as Williams risks the shark infested waters.

Speaking with CNN affiliate Seven Network, Williams admitted that he’d observed the sharks, including the great white, before he entered the water. As they were feeding on the whale’s carcass, however, he thought they’d pose little problem.

The whale has since washed ashore at Scarborough, a suburb of the city of Perth, drawing the sharks with it. Officials have been forced to close beaches in the area due to shark sightings.
