An Australia girl is receiving a lot of praise online after a video of her rescuing a trapped shark emerged.
Billie Rea is seen getting hold of the draughtboard shark, who was stuck between two rocks during a tidal pool on the edge of Kingston Beach in Tasmania. “I have got a draughtboard shark. Come on darling,” Rea can be heard talking to her mother in a video.
“As soon as it came into view, I knew what it was and I knew that it couldn’t hurt her,” Rea’s mother Abby Gilbert, told. Gilbert said that she was more concerned about the wet rocks than the shark.
