As she told local media, the meter-long fish was afraid of people and was banging its head on the rocks. Hatheier felt sorry for the shark and decided to be a good Samaritan.
"I herded the shark into the shallows and then I just sort of jumped on him and put my knees on his fins. I then grabbed him around the neck so he couldn't swing around and bite me," she explained. After that the kind-hearted woman just threw the shark over the edge of the pool into the water and watched him swim away.
