A Melbourne woman dragged a thrashing shark back into the water on a popular beach, on January 8.

Sophie Hunt said she was walking her dogs around 8 pm, when she spotted what was believed to be a blue shark stranded on St Kilda foreshore. She texted her friend and with the help of another man who was walking his dog, they grabbed the creature by the tail and pulled it back into the ocean.
