Woman Filmed Picking Up Shark From Pool, Throws Him In Sea
Footage has emerged of a woman in Cronulla, swimming around in a shallow pool at the beach, following a shark.
The vision, which was uploaded to Cronulla Real Estate Facebook page, shows a woman swimming after a medium-sized shark in the pools.
She then picks it up and returns it over the rocks into the ocean.
This morning, Kyle and Jackie O spoke to the woman in the video, Melissa, who explained her bravery.
‘So what happened Kyle was my gorgeous mum swims down there every morning with her little friends… and they were swimming around and mum saw a fin.
‘And she went, ‘oh God there’s a shark in the pool, so she got out and got on the mobile and rang me, and me and my brothers ran down and said, ‘Oh mum it’s just a little Port Jackson, it’ll be fine!’
‘But God love her, she called 000 as well so the next thing the Police turn up and they’re like, ‘well we don’t know what to do!’
‘I said, look, I think I can herd him into the shallows…’
‘That’s exactly what you should do, push him into the corner… and someone else has some footage where you just lean down and pick up the shark like a toddler, and throw him over into the ocean!’ Kyle exclaimed.
‘When I had him the shallows I thought, ‘oh this is not too bad, the poor guy he’s used to be the big ocean and he’s stuck in a little pool it’s like being in jail - so I thought, I’ve got to help him and I just put my knees on each side of his fins… and I thought as long as I hold his neck he can’t swing back and bite me. And then I just picked him up and yeah, it was like picking up a little kid!’
