Sydney real estate agent Melissa Hatheier was swimming in the Oak Park rock pool near Cronulla when she spotted the shark trapped in a rock pool, presumably because of the low tide.

Not keen on finishing her swim early, a Sydney women made a decision to throw the pesky shark out of the pool.

Clearly not one to mess around, she follows the animal, she wraps her arms around it and hoists it out of the pool and back into open water. When most people notice a shark swimming in the pool they're in, their instinct would be to get the hell away from it.

Don't believe us? Cop this extraordinary video posted to Facebook by Mel's employer Cronulla Real Estate yesterday. I just thought I would try and catch him.

The incident was filmed by one of Hatheier's daughters and uploaded to the Facebook page of the real estate company where she works.

"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 picked him up and off he went, ' she laughed, joking that she hoped the fearless stunt would be enough to get her a spot on next season's 'Survivor" TV show.

She added: "He wasn't that heavy but his skin was very rough, like sandpaper".

A daring Australian real estate agent tossed a shark out of a sea pool and back into the ocean on Monday.

But - as the video shows - Melissa didn't let the warnings scare her.
