Real estate agent's courageous shark rescue caught on camera

The brave agent'herded the shark into shallow water and then bent over to pick it

Sydney real estate agent Melissa Hatheier was swimming in the Oak Park rock pool near Cronulla when she spotted the shark trapped in a rock pool, presumably because of the low tide. When the Police were unsure what to do about the animal, Hatheier took matters into her own hands. The shark was distressed because it couldn't escape, The Independent reported.

Hatheier told The ABC she may not have been so brazen had the shark been a bigger breed, however.

After corralling the lost creature, she bends over to try to return it to its natural environment.

The clip then shifts towards her wrestling with the sea beast before casually picking it up. The water was very clear and it was easy to see the shark swimming around.

The incident happened in Cronulla, south of Sydney in New South Wales, and was captured on video before with it posted on Cronulla Real Estate's Facebook page. "I then grabbed him around the neck so he couldn't swing around and bite me".

Ms Hatheier filmed the footage by celebrating. Her son, Nathan, was also there, but he left earlier.

Ms Hatheier told local media: "My mum swims there every morning with friends and they rang me saying there was a shark, so I ran down there".

The crowd of onlookers cheered after she tossed the shark into the ocean, to which she raised her arms in triumph. She joked while speaking on the show that "As a real estate agent I'm used to relocating people and this was similar".
