Australian Woman Does The Unimaginable With A Shark

A short clip of an Australian woman has gone viral for casually picking up a stranded shark which was posted on Facebook.

Melissa Hatheier, of Sydney, picked up the shark that was stuck in a rock pool and tossed it back into the ocean. Enough said.

The shark was a Port Jackson shark which isn’t considered dangerous.

“So I came down, there was a bit of a crew here, and had a look, and he was a little Port Jackson and was doing laps of the pool …” she told Channel 9’s Today show.


“I jumped in, and I thought, ‘I reckon I can probably get him out.’ And mum called 000, so the police came down as well.

“And they didn’t know what to do. So I said, I think I can just grab him. So I herded him into the shallows, and then I just sort of got on my knees. With his fins, I picked him up and helped him back.

“He was getting stressed because he was bumping into the rocks and I was thinking I just need to put him back where he is meant to be.”


She was praised for her quick take charge heroic attitude.
