Instagram Model Posing For

When asked whether she went into the water because the the post would generate a lot of hits on Instagram and increase the number of followers, Zarutskie replied "no".

The student conceded that she had been advised against going to the water alongside the marine predators prior to the incident. "I definitely will be thinking twice but it won't be scaring me away!" she told the BBC.

The young model - who is about to start a double-degree in nursing and business in Miami - chose to fearless waters despite due concerns from her boyfriend's family.

She told NBC that she was briefly pulled underwater while a five-foot shark had a chomp, before she "ripped (her) wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as (she) could". While floating on her back with her arms stretched out, one shark bit down onto an arm and pulled the 19-year-old underwater. Zaruskie said she did not see them.

Revealing all to Buzzfeed, she said: "Nurse sharks are calm creatures", adding that she had seen photos of people swimming next to them before.

Zarutskie got stitches and antibiotics for the bite, and doctors believe she still has pieces of shark teeth in her arm.

"It was a very scary experience", she recalls.

First of all, as a proud alumnus of the University of Miami, I'd like to say that the institution is a wonderful top 50 private research college with a gorgeous campus and bright students.

Taking to her social media, she welcomed the fact that her story had gone viral, hailing it as an opportunity to remains travellers to respect Mother Nature while exploring foreign countries. "I guess you know you have to take it with a grain of salt and it comes with the territory".

She stood up, raised her arm above the water and covered the wound to prevent blood from dripping into the ocean and attracting more sharks, and was able to make it to land without further injuries.

A Perth woman was also attacked by nurse sharks last month with vision of the attack caught on camera.
