Australian woman wrangles shark with bare hands out of pool, video shows

A Sydney woman has been filmed picking up a shark in a rock pool with her bare hands and returning it to the ocean. The shark is thought to have entered the pool during high tide (ai_yoshi) "I was feeling sorry for him", she said.

Cronulla real estate agent Melissa Hatheier was taking her regular swim in the Oak Park pool in Cronulla, south of Sydney, when she saw a small shark had become trapped. Huge cheers could be heard in the background as she succeeded in lifting the shark up and threw it back into the sea. "I just helped the shark relocate to the ocean". "I would have walked on water to get out of the pool". Her mother told her there was a Port Jackson shark swimming in the water. He was only about a meter long.

"He was pretty distressed and bumping into things, so I just followed him around for a bit".

"Everyone was saying, 'What do we do?' Mum even rang triple zero and the police came".

"I herded him into the shallows, got him between my knees and just lifted him out", Hatheier told the Today Show.

Her daughter Shannon captured video of the rescue, and the footage has made Hatheier a hero, as well as a viral sensation.

Hatheier swam into the pool to grab a hold of the shark before carrying it to the edge of the pool and tossing it back into the ocean. He wasn't that heavy but his skin was very rough, like sandpaper.

Cronulla Real Estate posted the video to Facebook, which shows the shark swimming under Hatheier.
