Girls stranded in shark-infested waters while trying to take photo

The quest for a perfect Instagram continues for four girls in Australia who had to be rescued while trying to take a picture.

The teenagers were floating on inflatables -- two flamingos, a unicorn and a dinosaur -- when the tide pushed them into shark-infested waters a quarter-mile away from shore on Phillip Island in Victoria.

"We just wanted to get a few good Instagram pictures, and it turned out we drifted nearly all the way to the other island," one of the teenagers told The Project.

Luckily, they were rescued by local squid fishermen, who used their lines to pull the girls to their boat.
