The man is alive and well , recovering in hospital where he gave about 437 interview cause that’s what you need after you just got hit in the face with a whale tail poor bloke !
Apparently the man , Dr Bishan Rajapakse a doctor for the emergency department of the Woolongong hospital was surfing amid a bunch of other surfers when they saw the whale approach them. The doc looked at his tail and remembers thinking ‘ wow this thing could knock us all out” .. then he woke up on the sand. The doctor treating Dr Rajapaske said he was ” the luckiest emergency room doctor to end up in the emergency room ” .
