A bull shark latched onto her thigh within seconds and took a large bite out of her leg.

Ms Freeman was rushed via ambulance to a medical centre where it took 20 stitches to close up the wound, according to Nine News.

‘(There was) so much blood, the outfit I was wearing was completely covered,’ Ms Freeman said.

‘I had socks on and they were completely red. It looked like something out of a horror movie.’

She posted two photos of her injuries to her Instagram account – one shows her thigh covered in stitches, while the other shows several bandages wrapped around her leg.

‘Ever survived a shark attack? I have but my phone didn’t!’ she wrote alongside photos of her injuries.

While she joked about being ‘shark bait’, local emergency services don’t have a record of any such attack.
