Shaun Harrington and his buddies thought they’d pull a shark diving stunt for a video series they’re shooting. The stunt worked in that it got Harrington his 15 minutes of fame, but he was almost eaten by a tiger shark in the process.

The 27-year-old daredevil made it out of the water unscathed. He may have lost his wife, however, who Harrington says is not talking to him anymore.

“It’s not the smartest thing,” Harrington said of the stunt.
