Woman finds shark found in swimming pool, throws it back into ocean

Hands down the most Australian thing I have ever seen: The video was uploaded to social media and watched almost 20,000 times in 24 hours

"Our in-house Shark wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park Rock Pool yesterday morning!"

She is then seen casually reaching into the water and pulling the deadly shark out of the water on its back, reaching over the rock pool and placing it in the ocean.

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.

"I jumped in and I thought, 'I reckon I can probably get him out.' And Mum, god love her, called 000 so the police came down as well", Hatheier recalled.

In a very understated interview with the St George & Sutherland Shire Leader, Hatheier said: "I just threw him over the edge of the pool into the water and watched him swim away". And they didn't know what to do.

The EPA has not, as was widely expected, issued a revised, weaker version of the Clean Power Plan. The clean power plan aimed to restrict greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Sydney resident Melissa Hatheier was swimming in a bay near Melbourne, when she stumbled upon a shark. I just thought I would try and catch him.

'I thought, you know what - if i can just herd him into the shallows I think I can pick him up. "I then grabbed him around the neck so he couldn't swing around and bite me". "I just dived on him".

Hatheier has been dubbed "the shark wrangler" by her office colleagues. "I wasn't really scared but I wouldn't have done it with a great white [shark]". She described holding the shark in her arms as "kind of like a toddler", according to the BBC.

"Nominate this lady for a Nobel Prize", one man wrote on Facebook. "That shark owes its life to you".
