UM student bitten after swimming with sharks in the Bahamas

Instagram Model Posing For UM student bitten after swimming with sharks in the Bahamas

But the 19-year-old Instagram model and University of Miami student still had a frightening experience with one during a Bahamas trip last month, and she tells BuzzFeed she feels "very, very blessed and fortunate" she came out of it relatively OK.

Melissa Brunning was hand-feeding a group of tawny nurse sharks on the back of a boat in Dugong Bay, in WA's far north, when one latched on and nearly took off her finger.

She said she felt the shark's teeth sink into her wrist, but managed to rip her arm free of the mouth quickly.

The student conceded that she had been advised against going to the water alongside the marine predators prior to the incident. Even though her boyfriend's family was nervous for her, Zarutskie chose to try it herself.

There is actually a sign at the marina telling people that the sharks do occasionally bite, and that people swim at their own risk, but Katarina claims that she didn't see it.

"They are wild animals, and it's an uncontrollable situation", she said.

"Adrenaline was kicking in and I just knew I needed to get out of the water", she said, leery of riling up the sharks with blood in the water.

NASA’s Kepler Telescope has alarmingly low fuel, goes to sleep
For now, Kepler's team is concentrating on the downloading of data gathered during the spacecraft's most recent observation. The team will start its 19th observation campaign on August 6 if the download is successful.

But while posing for the pictures a shark bit into the model's wrist and held her underwater for several seconds.

She told WPLG-Ch. 10 that doctors told her that she still has shark teeth fragments in her arm.

A model from Houston says she loves sharks even after she was bitten by one in the Bahamas.

She is upset at the way she has been stereotyped and accused of being social-media obsessed and careless.

She's since had to make her Instagram private, after people accused her of blaming the sharks and causing the situation herself, but she insists that's not the case. She went to the hospital to get treatment for her infected wounds.

She added she's concerned the scarring could affect her modelling career.
