The BBC reports she'd finished lunch one day on Staniel Cay with her boyfriend and his family when they came upon people snorkeling with nurse sharks.

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

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

Katarina Zarutskie has permanent scarring from the shark attack.

Seconds later, Zarutskie discovered why swimming with sharks on objective can be a risky idea.

Katarina Zarutskie was bitten on the wrist by a nurse shark in the Bahamas.

She said she felt the shark's teeth sink into her wrist, but managed to rip her arm free of the mouth quickly.

India thump England to clinch T20 series after Rohit Sharma century
Pandya came back in the 18th over to thwart another surge from England , this time taking out Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow. The hosts then lost wickets in quick succession and were eventually restricted them to 198/9 in 20 overs.

She had her boyfriend's father take photos of her in the water surrounded by them.

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.

The 19-year-old, who was on vacation with her boyfriend and his family, set out to join a group of snorkelers - despite the fact that her boyfriend was "freaking out".

"They are wild animals, and it's an uncontrollable situation", she said. She claims she did not plan to post the photos to Instagram in the first place-and her account has, at the time of writing, gone private.

She says she was not posing for Instagram when she went into the waters and simply wanted a once in a lifetime experience to be with the animals.

"Adrenaline was kicking in and I just knew I needed to get out of the water", she said, leery of riling up the sharks with blood in the water.

The vision shows Ms Brunning right at the water's edge as one of the sharks swims in front of her. The group passed an area in the ocean where several nurse sharks were swarming, and since it was promoted that swimming with these creatures was a safe and normal activity in the area, Katarina made a decision to hop in and get some photos (Note: a warning sign by the pool of sharks clearly stated that the animals "can and do bite" on occasion).
