Katarina Zarutskie was holidaying in the Bahamas, with her boyfriend and his family last month when she made a decision to go swimming with nurse sharks in the marina, NBC reports.

A 19-year-old college student and Instagram model was posing for a bird's-eye water photo in the Bahamas when a shark bit her on the wrist, BuzzFeed News reports.

After a family lunch in an area known as Staniel Cay, Katarina spotted people snorkelling and interacting with a pack of nurse sharks nearby.

Katarina chose to swim with a herd of nurse sharks at Staniel Cay - but things went wrong when a 5-foot nurse shark bit her arm and started to drag her under the water. "I was pulled underwater for a few seconds and then ripped by wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as I could".

She said she managed to remain calm, holding her wrist above water and using her other hand to stop the flow of blood.

"When he bit me, supposedly it sounded like a big vacuum seal sort of sound", she recalled. A photo she shared on Instagram showed the bite in action.

"I think if someone was screaming and flailing around it definitely could have changed the situation".

She added: "Everyone said they could hear the bite".

Thankfully she was okay and just had to get stitches and antibiotics for her injuries, though she does still have some fragments of teeth left in the wounds. Katarina posted them to social media, where she's been overwhelmed with comments asking for details.

But there were warning signs around the picturesque spot where the shark attack took place.

As for Katarina, she know that the sharks didn't do anything wrong.

Raised in Laguna Beach, California, Zarutskie said she grew up surfing and enjoying the beach.

This might just be me, but having your photo taken fuckin' sucks.

Earlier this month, a woman on vacation in Dugong Bay, Australia, experienced a similar ordeal with a tawny nurse shark.
