Instagrammer attacked by shark while trying to get the perfect pic

People will go to great lengths to capture the perfect picture, but sometimes things don't go according to plan.

Model Katarina Zarutskie, 19, was visiting the Bahamas with her family and boyfriend when the incident occurred.

On a stroll along the beach she came across a pool of nurse sharks and having known that this type of shark has a calm disposition, she decided to get into the water and get a great picture. Swimming with nurse sharks is an everyday activity on the island. 

She was floating on her back with the attack occurred. She was bitten on the hand and then pulled, but she managed to remain calm and to get out of the water safely.

She has since cautioned people and I don't think she will be doing something like this any time soon. 

In my opinion, stupid girl - what a foolish thing to do and no one should ever do that! I took a pic with a giant tiger in Thailand, and it was very, very stupid! Will never do that again, that's for sure.
