Swimmer's GoPro Video Of A Shark In Sydney Harbour: Real Or Fake?

Creative video editing, CGI or one hell of an unlucky coincidence? Sydney Harbour doesn’t get a lot of sharks, let alone white pointers — but it’s certainly possible. Let us know whether you think this video posted by Terry Tufferson on YouTube is genuine.

For what it’s worth, my money is on fake. Big sharks in the harbour are rare, and if I jumped from a rock cliff into the water and saw that staring back at me, I’d be swimming non-stop for terra firma, not stopping occasionally for the shark to conveniently swim past the camera.
