Instagram model attacked by shark in Bahamas

The Exuma islands in the Bahamas are famous for their white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and endless photograph opportunities. "What happened was an accident, and I don't want to throw the shark under the bus", Zarutske said.

Now, nurse sharks are largely pretty docile, but it's always worth remembering that they are still sharks. Even though her boyfriend's family was nervous for her, Zarutskie chose to try it herself.

She said she managed to remain calm, holding her wrist above water and using her other hand to stop the flow of blood.

"From my previous knowledge from surfing and scuba diving, I know nurse sharks are usually very safe", she tells the BBC.

Zarutskie has almost doubled her following on Instagram since her story came out; however, she has since made her account private, partly because she has "received a lot of rude and hateful comments from people that were saying ridiculous things", she told BBC. "I'm so blessed that it was just this", Zarutskie says.

Her boyfriend, Tom Bates, was taking pictures.

However when she was encouraged to lie back by a local resident, Katarina was bitten by a shark with it pulling her under water for several seconds.

Immediately after getting out of the water, Zarutskie went to a clinic at the marina and had her wound cleaned and wrapped. "Next thing I knew I was underwater and adrenaline just kicks in", she said.

One user wrote: "I think you handled the situation like a boss!"

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

Luckily, she's okay...but the photo of her bite is quite brutal.

Since the incident emerged the model has received a barrage of criticism from online trolls. She's been accused of being a dumb blonde who is obsessed with social media.

She jumped into the water on her own, without any sort of tour guide. The models said she's fine after the attack.

"But it's the internet right?" "They took the information they wanted and really spun the story in a way that I'm a stupid blond Instagram model". She went to the hospital to get treatment for her infected wounds.

"I'm not afraid of the ocean and if anything I respect and love it more", she says.
