A male patient is now being airlifted to Mackay Hospital with significant leg and wrist injuries following a shark attack in waters near #CidHarbour which occurred at 5.37pm.

A man has died after a shark attack in northeastern Australia's Whitsunday Islands, just over a month after two people were critically injured in separate incidents in the same area.

The man bitten on Monday suffered severe injuries in his legs and arm, and was resuscitated before being transferred to hospital, a spokesman for the Queensland Ambulance Service said.

The attacks led to the beach area being closed off as well as a shark bait operation, in which six sharks were hooked and killed within a week.

Justine Barwick was bitten by a shark at Cid Harbour in the Whitsundays in September.

When is Red Dead Redemption 2 online coming out?
A patch will be released for Red Dead Redemption 2 adding the public beta for the current game. Now, the glitch happens in the hump of land located next to the "na" in the word "Coronado".

Police said the latest victim, 33, had been swimming with friends when the attack happened on Monday.

French-speaking tourists in a nearby vessel launched a tender to rescue the pair from the water before two doctors who were part of the man's group began immediate first aid before paramedics arrived.

Rescue crewman Ben McCauley described the man's injuries as "absolutely horrific", adding: "He'd suffered very serious bites, significant blood loss as well as cardiac arrest".

Australia has not experienced a fatal shark attack since 17-year-old Laeticia Brouwer lost her leg while surfing with her father off Esperance in Western Australia on April 17 last year.
