Newlyweds Sarah and Evan Carroll were scuba diving on Friday while on their Caribbean honeymoon when one of the sharks they were swimming with bit Sarah's arm. According to PEOPLE, Evan happened to be filming at the time and Sarah later shared video and pictures of her injury.

"I felt a strong whoosh of water, something clamp down on my arm and assumed my husband was playing a prank on me," Sarah, 25, told the magazine. "Less than a second later I realized how much it hurt and looked ... to see the shark latched onto my arm."

The New York Daily News reports it was a 5-foot nurse shark that bit Sarah. Nurse sharks typically don't attack unless provoked; Sarah can be seen swimming with her hands extended toward the shark in the above video, but does not do anything more than before it bites.

Sarah accompanied pictures of the bite with the Facebook caption "Ended the honeymoon with a bang (bite)." She's reportedly healing well and did not require stitches.
