The shark is thought to have entered the pool during high tide (ai_yoshi) "I was feeling sorry for him", she said.

If you're Melissa Hatheier, real estate agent and deadset Aussie legend, you calmly wrestle that shark from the pool and fling it back into the ocean, apparently, all without seeming to break a sweat. "I then grabbed him around the neck so he couldn't swing around and bite me", she explained.

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? She chose to catch the shark in the shallows so she could get ahold of it.

Patriots QB Tom Brady returns to practice Wednesday
According to National Football League stats, Brady has been sacked 16 times so far this season and hit 33 times. The good news for the Patriots is that Brady's injury is not serious and is to his non-throwing shoulder.

While Hatheier was applauded for her bravery, she said she knew Port Jackson sharks are relatively harmless. And they didn't know what to do. I started to swim around him and he became a bit stressed and started to knock his head on the rocks. "Everyone was saying, 'What do we do?' "I herded the shark into the shallows and then I just sort of jumped on him and put my knees on his fins. I just dived on him". She described holding the shark in her arms as "kind of like a toddler", according to the BBC.

Hatheier's daughter, Shannon, captured the daring save on video, showing the real estate agent using her bare hands and picking up the shark and safely placing it over the divider. "It was pretty amusing".

The shark was an infant that she said was about three-feet long. She was cheered online, too. "That shark owes its life to you".
