Australian real estate agent corners a shark, single-handedly lifts it out of a pool and throws it back into the ocean like it was no big deal. She’s now being hailed as a local hero, with many calling her heroics the ”most Australian thing ever.”
An Australian real-estate agent has been nicknamed ‘shark wrangler’ after a video of her casually lifting a swimming shark and transferring it on the other side went viral. The incident happened at the Oak Park Rock Pool in the Sydney suburb of Cronulla. Melissa Hatheier told local news sites that her family had told her that a shark had drifted into the pool and no one knew what to do, which is when she thought she could just grab him.
“So I herded him into the shallows and then I just sort of got on my knees. With his fins, I picked him up and helped him back,” Hatheier told news.com.au. Not a great day for shark ego, the real-estate agent has left people thoroughly impressed, who dubbed her heroics as the ”most Australian thing ever.”
