After a family lunch in an area known as Staniel Cay, Katarina spotted people snorkelling and interacting with a pack of nurse sharks nearby.

"From my previous knowledge from surfing and scuba diving, I know nurse sharks are usually very safe," she tells the BBC. "I've seen countless photos of people with them on Instagram."

The fish have become a local tourist attraction, encircling the local docks and featuring in thousands of tagged photographs online.

She says that after a few minutes posing, a local resident on the pier encouraged her to lie back and float in the water.

"At this point people were starting to take photos and right as I lay back, after a few seconds, I was pulled under," she says.

Her boyfriend's father was photographing Katarina at the time, and accidentally caught the whole incident in a series of images.

'Stupid Instagram Model'

She is upset at the way she has been stereotyped and mocked for being social-media obsessed and careless. The model did not even plan to upload the images to her social media page until she was approached by journalists about her experience earlier this week.

Katarina also rejects accusations she ignored local advice or went into the water during feeding time.

"They took the information they wanted and really spun the story in a way that I'm a stupid blonde Instagram model," she says.

"I've definitely received a lot of rude and hateful comments from people that were saying ridiculous things."

"But it's the internet right? I guess you know you have to take it with a grain of salt and it comes with the territory."

She does not want the experience or photographs to put off others from visiting the area or interacting with local wildlife when abroad, and describes the Exumas as the "most beautiful place" she has ever visited.

"I'm not afraid of the ocean and if anything I respect and love it more," she says.

"He didn't mean it: he's a wild animal, and I think anyone that goes and swims with nurse sharks needs to realise it is an uncontrollable situation.

"You can't even predict how another human is going to react to situations, let alone an animal. I definitely will be thinking twice but it won't be scaring me away!"
