In the process, Brunning's hand was sucked into the mouth of the shark, and she was pulled into the water with the shark.

According to CNN's affiliate 7 News in Australia, Melissa Brunning of Perth was on vacation in a remote area called Dugong Bay when it happened.

Although she was quickly pulled back on board by her companions, Brunning initially thought that she'd lost her finger in the attack. "All I could really focus on was the fact that my finger is gone", Brunning said.

The woman was feeding fish to a shiver of tawny nurse sharks when one of them bit her and hauled her into the sea. In this case, the attacker's multiple rows of shark teeth and powerful jaws were strong enough to fracture Brunning's bone. "The only way I can describe it is this vast pressure and it felt like it was shredding it off the bone".

'The only way I can describe it is this vast pressure and it felt like it was shredding it off the bone'.

The victim was afraid that I would lose him.

As it was only day three of her dream two-week holiday in remote WA, Ms Brunning made a decision to carry on, hoping her finger would heal by itself.

"Just be mindful of your surroundings and don't feed sharks", Brunning stressed.

"It's not the shark's fault at all, but it could have been a lot worse", she added.

Melissa says she was "lucky" and wants people to know that the shark bite incident was "completely my fault". I've always had the opinion that when you're in the water, they're top of the food chain, it's their domain.

She is still taking antibiotics after having surgery to fix her broken finger and said she has learnt to 'respect marine life and look at it in awe but just leave them alone'.
