February 14, 2013: A video has emerged online of a man jumping into a 12000L fishtank inside the Radisson Blu waterfront Hotel before running away from hotel staff.

Footage has emerged of a man going for a swim in a large fish tank with his clothes on for a bet at a British hotel.

A video shows the man jumping into the 12,000L glass tank as his friends laugh and goad him on at the reception of the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel in Jersey, a British Crown Dependency off the coast of France.

As tropical fish in the tank quickly swim away from the paddling intruder, a hotel employee approaches the group and starts yelling.

"What are you f---ing doing? What are you doing that for? Get out," the staff member says in the video.

The swimmer climbs out and sits perched on the edge of the fish tank looking at the staffer for a moment before making a run for it.

No fish were hurt in the incident, the hotel's sales and marketing director told the Jersey Evening Post.

"However, it was a careless act and dangerous for all involved, including the fish," she said.

The hotel is reportedly investigating its security after the incident.
