Video shows the terrifying moment a women is dragged by a shark into crocodile-infested waters, and almost loses her finger.

Melissa Brunning, 34, was on a yacht in the remote Kimberley region in the northwest part of the country, located about 1,550 miles north of Perth, when she tried to hand-feed up to four tawny nurse sharks swimming around her boat.

Although she was quickly pulled back on board by her companions, Brunning initially thought that she'd lost her finger in the attack.

Ms Brunning said she feared she would lose her finger.

Brunning let out a scream as she plunged into the water without warning.

Tawny nurse sharks are normally calm, according to 7 News, but have powerful jaws and multiple rows of teeth. "It clamped on it and it felt like it was shredding off the bone". The finger was also badly infected, The West Australian reported, and Brunning had to undergo surgery to flush out the infection. "I couldn't even look at the finger because I thought if I looked at it and saw it was gone, I'd probably go into shock".

Argentina le empató el partido a Francia
Hoy fue el 15º partido de Jorge Sampaoli como seleccionador de Argentina , utilizando su 15ª alineación titular diferente. Asimismo, lamentó que se tratara del último partido de este Mundial de Lionel Messi , "uno de los grandes favoritos".

The good news was her finger was still attached to her hand - she sustained cuts, a fracture and a torn ligament, but it was still intact.

The sharks will bite and act defensive if they are stepped on, or bothered by divers who assume they're docile.

Please ignore words like "shocking" and whatnot, as this is basically just footage of a shark behaving exactly as one might expect a shark to behave.

"I'm not a shark victim, I have full respect for sharks, I think they're incredible".

"When you're in the water, they're top of the food chain, it's their domain", she said.

"It was an unforgettable trip, I've got a cool story, a cool injury and I'll have a cool little scar, but I'm just grateful that it wasn't worse than what it was", she said.
