Shark bites University of Miami student in Bahamas

Shark bites University of Miami student in Bahamas

The Exuma islands in the Bahamas are famous for their white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and endless photograph opportunities. "It just happened", Katarina Zarutskie says.

"My boyfriend's family was freaking out when I went to swim with the sharks and I was like, 'it's fine, '" she said.

She said she managed to remain calm, holding her wrist above water and using her other hand to stop the flow of blood. She added the locals were "very encouraging" in telling her to try the activity.

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. She was bitten on the wrist, and in true model fashion, she took pictures of the wound. "I was pulled underwater for a few seconds and then ripped by wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as I could".

But as she posed for a photo, a shark latched onto Zarutskie's arm.

"I think if someone was screaming and flailing around it definitely could have changed the situation".

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

Katarina has not let her experience stop her from enjoying and respecting the ocean.
