“As the shark gets closer make sure you maintain eye contact, reach out your hand and lock your elbow.”

She continues: “Then press your hand flat on the top of the shark’s head and follow through by pushing up and over them.
“Leave your hand along the side of their body to maintain that extra space in case the shark decides to turn back to you again.
“Then after the shark starts to swim away make sure to do a look around and make sure there are no other sharks approaching you.”
She shared the video on TikTok on Monday and it has already racked up 4.1million likes.

She adds: “Swimming away is the worst possible thing you could do and if you try and extend your fins to block, the tiger will likely plow right through them.”
