Instagram Model Gets Bitten By Shark During Ocean Photo Shoot!

A California Instagram model, Katarina Zarutskie, was on vacation in the Bahamas with her boyfriend and his family when she couldn't pass up a good photo op!

Several nurse sharks were around and it was promoted that swimming with them was safe and normal. Katarina got in the ocean to get some photos. One shark unfortunately wasn't as friendly as advertised because it swam up to her and bit her on the arm! Luckily for Katarina she is okay!

Katarina explained to NBC News that she was pulled underwater for a few seconds and ripped her wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as she could. She was able to remain calm and pulled her arm out of the water so that the blood wouldn't attacted more. 

She also learned about the risk of infection and quickly flew home to get further treatment.
