In a shocking incident, a woman was dragged into crocodile-infested waters by a shark. Melissa Brunning was on a yatch in the remote Kimberley region and was trying to feed four tawny nurse sharks swimming around the boat but one shark sucked at her right index finger and pulled her into the water.
Not just sharks, the bay is inhibited by saltwater crocodiles, which can grow up to 7m long and weight more than a ton.
“I think the shark was in shock as much as I was… the only way I can describe it is this immense pressure and it felt like it was shredding it off the bone,” she told The West Australian.
She added, “I came up and I was like, ‘I’ve lost my finger, my finger’s gone’.”
Ms Brunning said the incident had taught her to “respect marine life, and look at it in awe, but just leave them alone”.
