Instagram Model Attacked By Shark While Trying To Get Picture

Meet Katarina Zarutskie, a 19-year-old Instagram model who recently visited the Bahamas with her boyfriend and his family. 

During their stay, Zarutskie came across a pool where several nurse sharks were swimming. "Nurse sharks are calm creatures," she tells BuzzFeed. 

She goes on to say she's seen plenty of instagram photos of people swimming next to the animals. But when Zarutskie got into the water, one of the sharks decided to take a bite out of her arm and pull her under. 

Zarutskie managed to get out of the water before the other sharks were attracted to the scent of her blood, but is still recovering from the bite and requires several rounds of antibiotics. 

She calls the incident a "big learning lesson" and notes, "they are wild animals and it's an uncontrollable situation."
