Man Risks Death and Legs in Budgie Cage Shark Swim Stunt

By Gary Cutlack on at

A pair of Aussie brothers were filming joke video clips to whack on the internet, with their latest idea being one where a bloke replaced a shark cage with a budgie cage and jumped into the sea. Problem was, there was a big shark there. And it went for him.

The guy involved seems relatively ashamed of his part in the near-death stunt, particularly when the local TV news interviewer starts mocking the high pitch of the scream he made when the tiger shark moved in. But he lived, with the only damage being that caused to the relationship between him and his wife. [YouTube via Metro]
