Man cliff jumps into shark-infested water

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

In a viral YouTube video, a man with a GoPro camera strapped to his head cliff jumps into Sydney Harbor then comes face to face with a great white shark.

The video, posted by a Terry Tufferson, shows the man jumping into the murky water. He resurfaces and looks up at his friends. After a moment, you can hear his pals shouting "shark!"

The man dips back into the water as a large great white swims underneath him. His screams are muffled by the water, and he frantically swims toward the nearby rocks.

When he's halfway to the safety of the shore, he dips back under the water. The sharks swims directly at him, but he flails his arms and legs. The shark turns away.

Finally, the man climbs onto the rocks. He turns the GoPro camera around and, breathing heavily, utters an expletive.

Despite comments disputing the authenticity of the video, the footage has accrued more than six million views on YouTube.
