  • BREAKING: Man attacked by shark off Whitsunday coast

A young girl was attacked by a shark at the same Queensland island where a Tasmanian mother was mauled less than 24 hours earlier.

Both attacks occurred in Cid Harbour, a picturesque bay surrounded by beaches in a popular tourist area on the north coast of Queensland.

The last shark attack in the area was eight years ago.

The 46-year-old woman was in a critical condition with life-threatening injuries on Wednesday night after she was mauled by a shark in Cid Harbour, at Whitsunday Island, about 5pm.

An investigation has been launched to look into how the error occurred, while the crew have been taken from their current duties. Jet Airways said it has derostered the concerned cockpit crew who will remain off scheduled duties pending an investigation.

"The woman has suffered significant leg and torso injuries in the shark attack incident", the spokeswoman said. The shark bite left her bleeding profusely, the report said.

Ms Barwick was helicoptered to Mackay Base Hospital where she remained in a critical condition on Thursday morning after overnight surgery.

The girl, who was with her father and sister when she was attacked, was given pain relief and three pints of blood on the flight to hospital.

She was airlifted to hospital after being bitten on the leg while swimming in the same Whitsundays area in northeastern Australia, first responders said. Of these, two people died.

"Fortunately there was a doctor on scene who was an emergency department doctor so fortunately he was able to assist in immediate treatment and to stabilise the serious haemorrhage that she had", she said.

As the RACQ CQ Rescue crew were unable to winch off the yacht, the injured woman was put into a dinghy and taken 100 metres from the boat.

On Friday, the woman was reportedly in a stable condition at a Brisbane hospital.
