Katarina Zarutskie, a nursing student in Miami with almost 28,000 Instagram followers and her own blog, was enjoying a trip to the Bahamas last month when she chose to swim with a group of nurse sharks.

A photo she shared on Instagram showed the bite in action.

According to David Hocher, who owns Staniel Cay marina, people do get bitten from time to time while around the sharks.

When asked whether she went into the water because the the post would generate a lot of hits on Instagram and increase the number of followers, Zarutskie replied "no".

The model made a decision to keep calm despite having just been set upon, and raised her arm from the water so the blood wouldn't attract more sharks.

Her boyfriend was snapping pictures when the incident took place.

"My boyfriend's family was freaking out when I went to swim with the sharks and I was like, 'it's fine, '" she said.
