Australian woman casually picks up stranded shark with her bare hands

Hands down the most Australian thing I have ever seen: The video was uploaded to social media and watched almost 20,000 times in 24 hours

The clip then shifts towards her wrestling with the sea beast before casually picking it up.

Instead of evacuating the Sydney ocean pool when she spotted a shark swimming in it, an Australian woman took matters into her own hands on Monday.

Hatheier told The ABC she's a regular in the waters in Cronulla and when she heard about the shark, she knew she had to act.

"He was pretty distressed and bumping into things, so I just followed him around for a bit", she said.

The shark was a Port Jackson shark, said to be harmless to humans.

The shark became trapped when it rode a wave or ocean surge into the rock pool that is separated from the ocean by a wall.

Mrs Hatheier then calmly threw the shark over the rockwall and into the ocean, while onlookers cheered her on.

"Our in house Shark Wrangler Melissa Hatheier wrestling a shark out of Oak Park Rock Pool yesterday morning!" "All in a day's work for a local real estate agent!" says another.

"I thought, as long as I keep my hand near its fins it couldn't bite me; I wouldn't have grabbed it by the tail though". I just thought I would try and catch him.

By holding the bronze whaler upside down, Ms Hatheier put the shark into a state of paralysis called "tonic immobility", meaning she could safely move it without putting herself in danger.

The video was uploaded to Facebook and viewed nearly 20,000 times in 24 hours.
