Two shark attacks in Whitsundays

The girl, who was on holiday with her father and sister, is in a critical condition and will undergo surgery.

Ms Barwick - who works for Family Based Care in north-west Burnie in northern Tasmania - was pulled out of the water and onto a nearby yacht, which happened to have a doctor on board.

The RACQ Rescue Helicopter landed on the beach to retrieve them just before 3pm.

A woman in her mid-30s was being transported to hospital in a serious but stable condition this evening after being bitten by a shark while swimming in the Whitsundays.

What about experts who can speak to the effects of this kind of trauma on a victim? "This all requires a great deal of integrity". There is some dispute over who actually said, "The ends justify the means", but there is no ambiguity over its meaning.


The girl was air-lifted to hospital after being bitten on the leg while swimming in the Whitsundays in northeastern Australia, first responders said.

Neither the age nor gender of the child has been confirmed.

Experts said shark attacks are increasing as water sports become more popular and bait fish move closer to shore, but fatalities remain rare.

Queensland Ambulance Services Manager of the Rockhampton Operations Centre Mindy Thomas said the helicopter was dispatched from Mackay and a paramedic sent from Hamilton Island.

It flew to Proserpine to refuel and reportedly to pick up blood before the woman was flown to the Mackay base hospital.
