An Australian windsurfer had a brush with death when a humpback whale breached out of the water and landed on top of him. The windsurfer, Jason Breen, described the terrifying experience of being knocked 20 to 30 feet below the surface and thinking that he was going to die. He was underwater for around 30 seconds before finally resurfacing.
The video shows the humpback whale leaping out of the water and crashing onto Breen while he was windsurfing. The incident occurred during the peak season for humpback whale sightings in Australia, which runs from April to November. Humpbacks are known for their acrobatic displays and large size.
