Hatheier and her daughters jumped into the auto and headed to the beach to investigate.

Hatheier has gone viral after a video shows her picking up a shark that somehow got stuck in an ocean pool in order to throw back into the sea and send it on its way.

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", the Facebook post read.

The clip has since been viewed about 20,000 times with most commenters lauding the moonlighting estate agent's shark handling efforts.

"My mum swims there every morning with friends and they rang me saying there was a shark, so I ran down there". He was only about a meter long.

'It was so gorgeous, this little shark was trapped in the rock pool, ' Ms Hatheier, an agent with Cronulla Real Estate, told Nova's Fitzy and Wippa.

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

"I herded the shark into the shallows and then I just sort of jumped on him and put my knees on his fins". He wasn't that heavy but his skin was very rough, like sandpaper.

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