Shark bites model as she poses for Instagram photo in the Bahamas

Staniel Cay Marina

But the post attracted an influx of comments attacking her for "blaming the shark", BuzzFeed News reports. Zaruskie said she did not see them. Luckily, she's okay...but the photo of her bite is quite brutal. Zarutskie was able to break free and swim to the shore. 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. "I am so fortunate that I still have my arm and my life".

Zarutskie told NBC that she was pulled under briefly when the reportedly five-foot shark made a decision to take a chomp on her arm then she "ripped [her] wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as I could".

Thankfully she was okay and just had to get stitches and antibiotics for her injuries, though she does still have some fragments of teeth left in the wounds.

Since the incident emerged the model has received a barrage of criticism from online trolls. The model did not even plan to upload the images to her social media page until she was approached by journalists about her experience earlier this week.


As for Katarina, she know that the sharks didn't do anything wrong. She did, but within moments, a shark bit her arm.

"But it's the internet right?" "[The doctors] now believe that I still have pieces of the shark teeth in my arm and I will forever have a scar", Zarutskie said, according to NBC News. "They took the information they wanted and really spun the story in a way that I'm a stupid blond Instagram model".

A Perth woman was also attacked by nurse sharks last month with vision of the attack caught on camera. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
