The TelegraphAn Australian woman has found online fame after a clip of her casually picking up a stranded shark was posted on Facebook. Melissa Hatheier, a Sydney-based estate agent, rescued the lost shark from a rock pool by picking it up “like a toddler” and throwing it back in the sea.

Thankfully, it turned out to be a Port Jackson shark, which are “considered harmless to humans”, according to the Australian Museum. “So I came down, there was a bit of a crew here, and had a look and he was a little Port Jackson and was doing laps of the pool ...” she told Channel 9’s Today show.

So I said, I think I can just grab him. So I herded him into the shallows and then I just sort of got on my knees. With his fins, I picked him up and helped him back. “He was getting stressed because he was bumping into the rocks and I was thinking I just need to put him back where he is meant to be.” The footage has been a hit on social media, with one joking: “In Australia we carry sharks like dogs.” Sam Soutar wrote: “Not all heroes wear capes.” Another posted: “Well done to Mel. That shark owes its life to you. Most people would have killed it.” Earlier this year, an incredible underwater photo captured a shark in a fish 'tornado'.
