    Instagram model bit while posing with sharks in Bahamas

    Instagram models are known for doing some pretty amazing and sometimes dangerous things.

    One recent trip to the Bahamas almost put one teen in big trouble when she decided to swim with sharks!

    The 19 year old Miami nursing student said she was coerced by locals to pose with the group of nurse sharks and found it an opportunity to “connect with nature.”

    All was well until while floating, one of them bit her on the wrist.

    She immediately headed for the stairs to get out of the water, holding her bloody arm above her head to keep it out of the water, leery of riling up the sharks.

    The Southern California native said doctors told her it could have been much worse. She was left with only a scar on her wrist.

    Thai cave rescue to receive television and Hollywood big screen versions

    Now that all the boys from the Thai soccer team and their coach have been rescued, the world will be able to watch two upcoming features on the entire dramatic ordeal.

    Discovery Channel will debut the first documentary feature (of what looks to be the start of many more to come from Hollywood) chronicling the rescue of Thailand’s Wild Boars soccer team from a flooded cave.

    Operation Thai Cave Rescue will be an hour long television special airing this Friday, July 13 at 7pm local time on Discovery Channel.

    The documentary “unpacks the human and scientific drama behind one of the most difficult and heart-palpitating rescues attempted in human history,” an official description from Discovery reads.

    Operation Thai Cave Rescue focuses on the triumph of the human spirit and the extraordinary scientific and technological innovations used to complete this miracle rescue.

    The rescue mission resulted in the death of a former Navy SEAL, according to BBC News. The final rescue mission on Tuesday, July 10 took nine hours to complete.

    The film will attempt to “explore and unpack every angle of this remarkable rescue operation,” including questions about why the boys were there and how they managed to survive more than two weeks without proper food and water.

    Hollywood is planning multiple movies about the Thai cave rescue that has captured the world’s attention.

    A U.S. film crew, including Pure Flix Films arrived on location and conducted “preliminary interviews around the cave site. They also reportedly planned to bring in a screenwriter. Pure Flix says they see this as a major Hollywood film with A-list stars. They hope to be the first to put out a full-length movie and with other production companies coming in they have to act pretty quickly.
