Sydney real estate agent wrestles shark out of pool

Not keen on finishing her swim early a Sydney women decided to throw the pesky shark out of the pool

The clip then shifts towards her wrestling with the sea beast before casually picking it up.

'It was so gorgeous, this little shark was trapped in the rock pool, ' Ms Hatheier, an agent with Cronulla Real Estate, told Nova's Fitzy and Wippa.

"I just picked him up and off he went, ' she laughed, joking that she hoped the courageous stunt would be enough to get her a spot on next season's 'Survivor" TV show.

You're going for a quick dip in an ocean pool and you catch sight of a shark in the water: what do you do?

The shark was thought to be a Port Jackson, and Hatheier's act in freeing it has been dubbed "the most Australian thing ever" on social media.

The Oak Park rock pool near Sydney, Australia.


Melissa Hatheier picked up the shark with her bare hands and tossed it back into the ocean on Monday.

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

"I thought, as long as I keep my hand near its fins it couldn't bite me; I wouldn't have grabbed it by the tail though". "I just dived on him".

"As a real estate agent I'm used to relocating people and this was similar". After getting close to it, Hatheier said the shark became stressed and started hitting its head against the rocks.

"I picked him up and thought 'he's not even that heavy".
