An Australian surfer was left fearing for his life as a whale body-slammed him into the ocean – and he caught the entire ordeal on digicam.
Jason Breen was wing browsing – a type of the game which makes use of a small sail – when a humpback whale emerged from the water and knocked into him, plunging the 55-year-old into the ocean.
Mr Breen informed native media he feared for his life because the animal dragged him deeper into the ocean by the board leash connected to his leg.
“Fortunately, I felt the leash break and from there I bought launched from beneath the whale’s physique and was in a position to come to floor,” he stated.
“I thank my fortunate stars that one thing that is not supposed to interrupt broke and ringed the webbing out.”
Mr Breen then swam to the shore, the place he found that his GoPro digicam had recorded every little thing.
“S***, I simply bought hit by a whale,” he says within the video of what occurred, shortly after making it again to the floor.
He added: “The entire thing was uncommon, one in 1,000,000 – it is a large ocean and there was a man on a headland who simply occurred to be filming by coincidence and my GoPro… I wasn’t pointing or filming so to get the footage was wonderful.”
Mr Breen was miraculously unharmed.
