34-year-old Melissa Brunning was trying to enjoy her vacation in Australia when 4 nurse sharks started swimming around her boat. She loves animals and she made the decision (a bad one may I add) to HAND FEED the sharks.
I mean I guess she figured that it would be a cool experience to hand feed the sharks but then the inevitable happened. One of the sharks got hold of her index finger and pulled her into the water!
Shocking video shows a shark biting the finger of a woman that attempted to feed it in Western Australia, dragging her into the water. She escaped with a fracture and a torn ligament. https://t.co/EWT1bFltDZ pic.twitter.com/C3cK488F2Q— ABC News (@ABC) July 2, 2018
She doesn’t consider herself a “shark victim” and takes full responsibility for what happened. Melissa said, “It’s not the shark’s fault at all. And it could have been a lot worse.”
She’s lucky that it wasn’t worse! I’m pretty sure that she won’t try hand feeding sharks ever again!!
