An Australian adrenaline junkie goes “cage diving” in shark infested waters and unsurprisingly brushes with death in this video.
The clip is from the Mad Hueys, a group of adrenaline junkies and fishermen that films themselves and their wild shenanigans on the water.
In the video, one of the Mad Hueys jumps into Snapper Rocks, a famous point break on the Gold Coast to go “cage diving.” That term is used liberally, as the cage is clearly just a medium-sized bird cage that he has placed over his head. The Jackass -style stunt backfires quickly when a 10-foot tiger shark swims by and tries to bite off his leg.
Check out the video to see what happens:

Speaking of sharks in Australia, the state of Western Australia has just begun a controversial shark culling program. The government has hired teams of fishermen to hunt sharks, following a series of fatal shark attacks in the area over the last three years.
