I’ve already written about the man who jumped on a whale carcass surrounded by sharks here, That was pretty bad. This story takes us to Australia again, however, hard to believe it but this stunt is probably even worse. Australia boat captain Aaron Moir has made a name for himself jumping on the back of sharks.
