An Australian woman has been filmed picking up a shark in a Cronulla rock pool and throwing it back into the ocean.

The video captured Melissa Hatheier, a real estate agent, picking up a one-metre shark in the pool at Oak Park in Cronulla. The video was posted on the Cronulla Real Estate Facebook page on Tuesday.

“Our in-house Shark Wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park Rock Pool yesterday morning! Nice work Mel!” the post read.

Ms Hatheier’s daughter Shannon, 19, a law student at the University of Sydney, filmed the encounter from the side of the pool, while her sister Lani, a year 8 student, watched on.

Ms Hatheier told Fairfax Media that she was surprised by the attention.

“I was just trying to catch a little shark,” she said.

“If it had big teeth I wouldn’t have done it.”

She said that she “herded the shark into the shallows and then just sort of jumped on him and put my knees on his fins. I then grabbed him around the neck so he couldn’t swing around and bite me.”

“I just threw him over the edge of the pool into the water and watched him swim away.”
