Ms Brunning slips off the back of the boat after her finger was bitten by the shark she’d been feeding

A woman was dragged into crocodile-infested waters by a shark as she tried to feed it during her "once-in-a-lifetime" trip in northwest Australia.

Cameras capture the ill-advised Dugong Bay feeding and and Melissa Brunning, 34, can be heard screaming in panic as the nurse shark latches onto her finger and pulls her into the water.

Her friends were able to pull her back onto the boat.

Brunning said she did not realise that she should have left the piece of fish in front of her and watch the shark suck it up, instead of trying to hand-feed it.

Brunning sustained cuts, a fracture, a torn ligament and a bad infection from the bite, but did not lose her finger.

"It was an unforgettable trip, I've got a cool story, a cool injury and I'll have a cool little scar, but I'm just grateful that it wasn't worse than what it was", she said.
