A fearless woman has been nicknamed the "shark wrangler" after she discovered a shark in a swimming pool and boldly picked it up and tossed it back in the ocean. Hatheier felt sorry for the shark and chose to be a good Samaritan.

Sydney resident Melissa Hatheier was swimming in a bay near Melbourne, when she stumbled upon a shark. Huge cheers could be heard in the background as she succeeded in lifting the shark up and threw it back into the sea.

Don't believe us? Cop this extraordinary video posted to Facebook by Mel's employer Cronulla Real Estate yesterday. "I saw it and it was just a little Port Jackson so I just thought I should chuck him out". Her mother told her there was a Port Jackson shark swimming in the water.

"I jumped in and I thought, 'I reckon I can probably get him out.' And mum called 000, so the police came down as well". She does not hesitate to seize the animal, a nurse shark, a species known to be harmless.

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".

"I herded him into the shallows, got him between my knees and just lifted him out", Hatheier told the Today Show.

Hatheier said she made sure to grab it around the neck so it couldn't swing around and bite her, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. He wasn't that heavy but his skin was very rough, like sandpaper.

"It was just like picking up a toddler", she said, adding she wouldn't have done it if it had been a Great White shark.
