Fearless woman becomes social media star by wrestling with shark

Hands down the most Australian thing I have ever seen: The video was uploaded to social media and watched almost 20,000 times in 24 hours

An Australian woman was caught on video wrangling a "toddler-like" shark and dumping it back into the ocean after it go stuck in a rock pool on Monday.

The crowd of onlookers cheered after she tossed the shark into the ocean, to which she raised her arms in triumph.

"Our in-house shark wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park rock pool yesterday morning", the Facebook post read. Huge cheers could be heard in the background as she succeeded in lifting the shark up and threw it back into the sea. "I would have walked on water to get out of the pool".

An Australian estate agent who picked up a shark and heaved it out of a beachside swimming pool played down her bravery today and said she would have thought twice had it been a great white. So I said, 'I think I can just grab him.' So I herded him into the shallows and then I just sort of got on my knees.

"I picked him up and thought 'he's not even that heavy".

U.S. beats host India 3-0 in Under-17 World Cup opener
The U.S. team should have won the game by more as its finishing was off but the talent gap between the two countries was wide. Because playing the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup is just one of the first steps.

"I thought, as long as I keep my hand near its fins it couldn't bite me; I wouldn't have grabbed it by the tail though".

"My mum swims there every morning with friends and they rang me saying there was a shark, so I ran down there", she told the outlet.

Hatheier said the shark was "stressed" because it was trapped between the rocks, separated from the ocean and his natural habitat.

But - as the video shows - Melissa didn't let the warnings scare her.
