University of Miami student Katarina Zarutskie was vacationing in the Bahamas with her boyfriend and his family when she decided to pose for pictures while swimming with what were suppose to be “docile” nurse sharks.
Tom Bates, her boyfriend, was taking pictures when all of a sudden the 19-year-old Instagram model was pulled underwater by a shark.
The entire incident was captured on film.
Zarutskie was able to free herself, but she was left with a giant gash and teeth marks on her arm.
Despite, Zarutskie deeming the experience as “very scary,” she hopes her modeling career will continue and does not rule out posing with sharks again.
