A courageous Australian woman has been dubbed the Shark Wrangler after rescuing a shark that had been swept into the Oak Park rock pool in Cronulla, just south of Sydney.

You're going for a quick dip in an ocean pool and you catch sight of a shark in the water: what do you do?

Melissa Hatheier, a Sydney-based estate agent, rescued the lost shark from a rock pool by picking it up "like a toddler" and throwing it back in the sea.

"He was pretty distressed and bumping into things, so I just followed him around for a bit", she said. "I saw it and it was just a little Port Jackson so I just thought I should chuck him out".

International Olympic Committee suspends Brazil's Nuzman after arrest in vote-buying scandal
In a statement, the IOC said the Brazilian Olympic Committee was also suspended due to its responsibility for Rio's bid. The assets include 16 kg in gold bars deposited in Switzerland, Bretas said.

Melissa Hatheier picked up the shark with her bare hands and tossed it back into the ocean on Monday.

Her intervention, filmed by her daughter on a mobile phone, has turned Ms Hatheier into an internet sensation after video of the shark's removal went viral. And they didn't know what to do.

'I thought, you know what - if i can just herd him into the shallows I think I can pick him up. "With his fins, I picked him up and helped him back".

Hatheier said the shark was "stressed" because it was trapped between the rocks, separated from the ocean and his natural habitat. So I said, 'I think I can just grab him'. "All in a day's work for a local real estate agent!" says another. She described holding the shark in her arms as "kind of like a toddler", according to the BBC.
