GERALDTON, New South Wales (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — An Aussie man had onlookers in hysterics after he "swam" down a flooded street in Geraldton, New South Wales, Australia, on Saturday.

The Perth man took advantage of a burst water main that flooded a street outside the Freemasons Hotel. He began performing breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly to the applause of onlookers.

“I can’t even express how funny it was to watch in person,” uploader Tahlia Bland said.

Which aquatic animal are you?

According to Bland, the stunt was a dare from friends.

Geraldton was one of a number of towns affected by high temperatures in mid-January.

Severe weather warnings were issued for communities in New South Wales, Western Australia, Victoria and South Australia as authorities advised residents to follow health and safety tips to avoid heat stress.
