Shark bites University of Miami student in Bahamas

Staniel Cay Marina

An Instagram model has been bitten by a shark whilst trying to get a picture with them, floating in a marina.

Speaking with 7News on Tuesday, Zarutskie showed the wrist injury she suffered when a nurse shark bit down on it earlier this summer.

Luckily, she managed to free herself and swam up to some steps to get out of the water - holding her arm so that the blood would not attract other sharks.

Katarina Zarutskie has permanent scarring from the shark attack.

World Cup semi-final England v Croatia
England were comfortable winners over Sweden in their last game, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli.

"I'm not afraid of the ocean and if anything I respect and love it more", she says. She jumped into the water on her own, without any sort of tour guide.

Instead, it turned into one of the scariest moments of her life when Zarutskie floated on her back in the water and one of the sharks bit her wrist. But after doing some research and learning of the high risk of infection following a shark bite, Zarutskie chose to fly back to Florida the next day for further treatment.

Zarutskie knows it could have been worse.

"I've been on so many different medications", she told WSVN-Ch.

Scientists Discover Earth's Oldest Color - Bright Pink
Despite being 4.6 billion years old, an explosion of complex life on Earth didn't take place until about 650 million years ago. The first animals, which are either sponges or some sort of comb jelly , didn't appear until roughly 600 million years ago.

Predictably, the ordeal resulted in a wave of hateful comments and behavior towards Zarutskie online.

A Perth woman was also attacked by nurse sharks last month with vision of the attack caught on camera. She believes the bite was "all a big accident" and the shark may have mistaken her for a piece of food. It clamped on it and it felt like it was shredding off the bone. "I saw it as an opportunity for me, another chance to connect with nature".

Brunning tried to continue her vacation after receiving treatment, but a serious infection required her to return to Perth for surgery. However, the bite left her with pretty gnarly bite marks on her wrist, and it definitely looks painful.
