A video of a shark attack that was posted on Instagram went viral three months later.

A freediver named Carmen Canovas Cervello was on vacation in the Maldives when she decided to go snorkeling and freediving in Vaavu Atoll.

«We decided to go on a free diving trip to Shark Bay and snorkel inside a group of sharks,» Ibrahim Shafeeg, the person who filmed the video, told the New York Post.

The duo were in the water for 45 minutes with no issues. However, as a nurse shark was circling Cervello, who, coincidentally, is a nurse shark, the shark bit her on the left shoulder blade, leaving a six-inch-wide mark.

Shafeeg, known as «The Shark Guy» on social media, posted the video on his Instagram account to let his followers know that «accidents happen» while swimming with sharks.

«It is strongly recommended that divers do not attempt to feed nurse sharks while swimming with them… Accident occurs during freediving at shark point while feeding… Take precautions when swimming with sharks,» he wrote.

Cervello wrote in the post that he will «never forget it,» along with a cautionary sign emoji.

«It wasn’t that long,» he said in another comment.

The charge notes that Cervello did not even seek medical treatment immediately after the incident and continued to dive.

«After the shark bite, we didn’t think about anything major as it was just a minor injury, so we cleaned the wound and continued diving in the same spot again,» Shafeeg said.

Shafeeg and Cervello realize that it could have been much worse, but believe the bite was more of a warning.
