A harrowing video depicts the tragic final moments of a kayaker stranded at sea off the coast of New South Wales, Australia. Jeremy Worthy, 43, had posted the video to Facebook Sunday as a last-ditch rescue plea before his body was discovered in the water just hours later, reports the Daily Mail.
“There’s no going back where I came…that’s too far,” laments the adventurer, who can be seen hopelessly trapped in the tumultuous swells miles from land in either direction. “[Do I] keep going or stay here?”
Prior Facebook photos from 11:20 a.m. Sunday morning show that the Yass, Australia, native had embarked on a kayak fishing trip. Despite getting “swamped while launching,” Worthy says “the conditions weren’t too bad past the shore waves,” according to an 11:36 a.m. post.
Less than an hour later, Worthy uploaded his final video. “This is tiring,” says the exhausted Aussie about his bleak predicament, adding that “it’s cold and wet and dark.”
Despite the dire circumstances, Worthy is not above taking a cheeky jab at his mate. “Paulie, I’m blaming you for telling me to come out here,” he quips dryly. “Paul, this is on you mate.”
The kayaker concludes the clip by commenting, “It’s nice when it calms down.”
