Sharks drag woman into water

July 3, 2018


A woman named Melissa Brunning, 34, took a little vacation in western Australia on Dugong Bay and decided to hand-feed the sharks, despite being warned not to. The boating trip nearly turned deadly when she was pulled into the water by the shark when it latched onto her finger and pulled her in. 


“The only way I can describe it is this immense pressure and it felt like it was shredding it off the bone. I came up and I was like, ‘I’ve lost my finger, my finger’s gone."


Luckily, the shark only managed to get a piece of her finger. She suffered a few cuts, a bone fracture, an infection and a torn ligament in her finger but will keep the finger thanks to her doctor.


"It happened so quickly. All I could really focus on was the fact that my finger is gone. He’d clamped on it and it felt like it was shredding off the bone." she said.
