Shark bites Instagram model during Bahamas photo shoot

Katarina Zarutskie was vacationing on Staniel Cay, one of the islands in the tropical region, and chose to go swimming with nurse sharks-which are mostly harmless.

An Instagram model was been bitten by a shark during a photo shoot in the Bahamas. Alright, so that might not quite be a universal experience, but it is, at the very least, one had by the highly unfortunate 19-year-old Instagram model Katarina Zarutskie.

According to the Exuma Online, a tourist website for the island claims nurse sharks are "harmless to humans" and promotes swimming with them as a "once in a lifetime adventure".

As soon as Zarutskie freed herself from the 5-foot shark, she raised her bleeding arm and walked over the other sharks and out of the water.

She had her boyfriend's father take photos of her in the water surrounded by them.

With nine of the top 10 women's seeds eliminated already, Hsieh has a chance to go deep into the tournament. Fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro advanced with a 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 victory over Frenchman Benoit Paire.

She did not swim with the sharks through a tour company or any organization that required payment, but, having grown up as a surfer in Southern California, she said she was not afraid to jump in the water near a marina. She claims she did not plan to post the photos to Instagram in the first place-and her account has, at the time of writing, gone private. Zarutskie said she respects all wildlife and is grateful her injuries were not worse.

"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.

Zarutskie - a Laguna Beach resident - was on vacation with her boyfriend and his family in the Bahamas and looking for the ideal Instagram shot.

The vision shows Ms Brunning right at the water's edge as one of the sharks swims in front of her.

She does not want the experience or photographs to put off others from visiting the area or interacting with local wildlife when overseas, and describes the Exumas as the "most attractive place" she has ever visited. "I was pulled underwater for a few seconds and then ripped by wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as I could". "They are wild animals and it's an uncontrollable situation", Zarutskie told Buzzfeed.
