She's since had to make her Instagram private, after people accused her of blaming the sharks and causing the situation herself, but she insists that's not the case.

Zarutskie told NBC that she was pulled under briefly when the reportedly five-foot shark chose to take a chomp on her arm then she "ripped [her] wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as I could".

Zarutskie had the injury cleaned and wrapped at the marina but travelled to Florida the following day for further treatment thanks to the risk of infection that comes with having a shark bite into your arm. Her boyfriend's father took several photos throughout the attack, capturing the exact moment that Zarutskie came in contact with the 5-foot-long shark. Model Katarina Elle Zarutskie was attacked by a nurse shark while on a family trip. While floating on her back with her arms stretched out, one shark bit down onto an arm and pulled the 19-year-old underwater.

"He had my wrist in his mouth and I could feel his teeth sinking into my arm", Zarutskie told NBC News.

The University of Miami student visited a local clinic following the incident, but made a decision to fly back to Florida the next day after learning shark bites carry a high risk of infection.

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

Zarutskie knows it could have been worse.

Zarutskie did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Hocher also wrote that from the photos of the incident, it appeared that Zarutskie was in the water during feeding time and that having her arms outstretched and fingers exposed would have been tempting for the sharks.

"It happened so quickly", Brunning told 7 News. It clamped on it and it felt like it was shredding off the bone. "I saw it as an opportunity for me, another chance to connect with nature".

When asked why she went ahead anyway, she replied, "It's just a once-in-a-lifetime experience".
