The brave agent'herded the shark into shallow water and then bent over to pick it

A woman's courageous antics went viral after footage showed her picking up a shark, wrestling with and before and throwing it back into the sea.

"Our in-house Shark wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park Rock Pool yesterday morning!"

She is seen swimming towards the shark in a beachside rock pool in Sydney, Australia. Huge cheers could be heard in the background as she succeeded in lifting the shark up and threw it back into the sea.

The shark became trapped when it rode a wave or ocean surge into the rock pool that is separated from the ocean by a wall.

Footage of her actions were posted on Cronulla Real Estate's Facebook page. She isn't sure if the shark was indeed a Port Jackson or another type.

Don't blame iOS 11 for your iPhone becoming sluggish
We should be seeing both the public beta and the developer beta for iOS 11.1 being released sometime this week. It might be worth actually downloading the beta releases for iOS 11.1 just for the new emojis alone.

She added, "I was thinking I just need to put him back where he is meant to be".

"Everyone was saying, 'What do we do?' Mum even rang triple zero and the police came". When most people notice a shark swimming in the pool they're in, their instinct would be to get the hell away from it.

"I herded him into the shallows, got him between my knees and just lifted him out", Hatheier told the Today Show.

"He was pretty distressed and bumping into things, so I just followed him around for a bit", she said.

Hatheier's daughter Shannon filmed her mother as she swam fearlessly up to the one-metre-long creature, picked it up and threw it over the pool's barrier and into the ocean. I wasn't really scared but I wouldn't have done it with a great white (shark).
