Instagram model recovering after shark bite in the Bahamas

An Instagram model has been bitten by a shark during an impromptu photo shoot. But, she added, "I am so fortunate that I still have my arm and my life".

Zarutskie maintains she "love [s] sharks".

She's since had to make her Instagram private, after people accused her of blaming the sharks and causing the situation herself, but she insists that's not the case.

"It's been interesting", she said.

Katarina Zarutskie was vacationing on Staniel Cay, one of the islands in the tropical region, and made a decision to go swimming with nurse sharks-which are mostly harmless.

Seconds later, Zarutskie discovered why swimming with sharks on goal can be a unsafe idea.

Katarina Zarutskie was floating calmly in the ocean off the Bahamas' Staniel Cay when she suddenly felt her arm being yanked down.

Love Island 2018: Host Caroline Flack announces split from fiance Andrew Brady
In a statement to one tabloid, Caroline explained, "I'm sad to announce that Andrew and I have chose to part ways". Apprentice star Andrew also took to his Instagram page to reveal the news. "I wish her all the best".

"Against my boyfriend's wishes and his parents wishes".

When asked why she went ahead anyway, she replied, "It's just a once-in-a-lifetime experience". The man who owns the marina said nurse sharks are normally docile but said those sharks could have been feeding, so Zarutskie's exposed fingers and limbs might have been tempting.

Speaking to NBC News on Monday, Zarutskie said she had heard from locals that swimming with nurse sharks was risk free.

"I don't regret it, and I would do it again to bring awareness", she said. Katarina posted them to social media, where she's been overwhelmed with comments asking for details. Unfortunately, one of the sharks wasn't as friendly as advertised...because it swam right up to Katarina and BIT her on the arm!

"[Doctors] now believe that I still have pieces of the shark teeth in my arm", she revealed.

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.

"We went to a church on the island after, like, everything was OK, and we prayed, because everything is OK, and I am so blessed", she said. She was convinced the shark had ripped her finger off.
