For many influential people in social networks, the search for the perfect shot can take you to places that defy death.
From perusing thoughtfully on the edge of a cliff to taking selfies with dangerous animals and stupidly doing stunts near the plane at low altitude, apparently there is nothing that some bloggers do not do for the gram.
But for an influential person, his search for a worthy photo went too far when he decided to pose in the middle of a nurse shark school.
You see where we are going here …
Instagram star Katarina Elle Zarutskie, who has more than 44,000 followers, floated in the clear waters of Staniel Cay in the Bahamas among dozens of sharks when one of them decided they wanted a bite.
The blogger told Buzzfeed News that she was caught briefly when a three-and-a-half-inch shark bit her arm.
“I leaned back, and then that shark that came and he bit my arm and pulled me,” he said.
Then he swam to the nearest exit for fear his blood would attract other sharks.
Fortunately, Zarutskie was fine, but had to lower his arm before flying to Florida for additional treatment.
The owner of the marina said that while nurse sharks are mostly docile, they can bite when they confuse limbs with food.
