A mum 'wrangles' a shark during her morning swim and throws it out of a beachside rock pool to huge cheers in this astonishing footage.

It was, real estate agent Melissa Hatheier claimed, just what she does in the office - relocating things needing a new home.

Melissa - now dubbed the "Shark Wrangler" by colleagues - went for a swim in the pool in the beachside suburb of Cronulla on Sydney's southside.

However, the swim was soon disrupted when her mum noticed a fin in the water while swimming with her group of friends and yelled "Oh my god, get out - there's a shark!"

Video shot by Melissa's daughter shows the mum fearless of the shark - swimming almost over it in the pool.

She then appears to wrestle with the shark and pick it up in her arms.

She carries it over to the edge of the pool and tosses it back into the ocean.

People watching on cheered loudly.

Melissa told Channel Nine's Today show: "I herded him into the shallows and then I just got him with my knees, with his fins, and threw him back and saved him,."

TV host Karl Stefanovic said: "Just a can-do woman."

Melissa continued: "I wasn't (scared). I was just thinking he was trapped in this rock pool and I needed to help him out.

"I'm a real estate agent. My job is to help people relocate to their perfect homes. I just helped the shark relocate to the ocean.
