Man killed in third shark attack in weeks on Great Barrier Reef

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.

Fox and NBC to Stop Airing Trump Immigrant Ad Deemed Racist
The wording of this announcement means that the ad would also not appear on NBC's cable channels like CNBC or MSNBC. Facebook is removing this Trump campaign ad for violating its rules against sensational content.

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.
