Woman bitten by shark while posing for Instagram photo

Instagram Model Posing For

A South Florida college student and Instagram user is sharing her story weeks after she was bitten by a shark while vacationing in the Bahamas.

Despite warnings from her boyfriend and his family, the nursing student and native of California had purposely gone into the water, which had nurse sharks - known to be harmless to humans - swimming nearby. "I leaned back, and then that shark he came and he bit down on my arm and pulled me under", she said.

Zarutskie said her past training for surfing and scuba diving quickly kicked in and helped her in the situation. A photo she shared on Instagram showed the bite in action.

"A lot of locals that were just excited, and encouraging me to swim with them", Zarutskie, 19, said in an interview that aired Wednesday on "Good Morning America".

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. Still, at the end of the day, she said she's "fortunate that [she] still [has her] arm and [her] life". She's been accused of being a dumb blonde who is obsessed with social media. She's been taking various antibiotics to prevent infection from bacteria, and admitted that she's anxious about how this injury will affect her modeling career.

As for Katarina, she know that the sharks didn't do anything wrong.

She does not want the experience or photographs to put off others from visiting the area or interacting with local wildlife when overseas, and describes the Exumas as the "most handsome place" she has ever visited. She said doctors told her she still has pieces of shark teeth in her arm.

"He didn't mean it: he's a wild animal, and I think anyone that goes and swims with nurse sharks needs to realise it is an uncontrollable situation".
