Shark kills paddle boarder off the north-east coast of Australia

Shark kills paddle boarder off the north-east coast of Australia

Christidis, a urologist from the city of Melbourne, was taking turns with a woman standing on a paddle board or swimming in the harbour late Monday afternoon.

"The QAS (Queensland Ambulance Services) and the helicopter were notified, however, by the time the helicopter arrived on scene, the man had lost a substantial amount of blood and had come in to cardiac arrest".

O'Connell said that this year's three major attacks remain an anomaly for the area.

As arguments continue over what needs to be done in response to a fatal shark attack at Cid Harbour in the Whitsundays, Queensland tourism operators say it is too early to tell if the recent spate of shark attacks will hit visitor numbers.

Queensland emergency services were able to reach the man and fly him to Mackay Base Hospital where he arrived in a critical condition.

The two-ton pickup slammed into the Scouts, visiting tragedy on the town of 14,000 before speeding off. Police said 21-year-old Colten Treu was driving a pick-up truck that left the road and hit the troop.

"CPR was ongoing for a very long time and every solid effort was made to save that man's life", O'Connell said, referring cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

In September a 12-year-old girl and a 46-year-old man suffered severe injuries from shark attacks while swimming on two consecutive days in the same area.

He suffered severe injuries to his left thigh, right calf and left wrist, and the group gave first aid to him after he was pulled from the water onto the 40-foot chartered vessel. "They did everything imaginable to try to save the man".

The Whitsunday Water Police, as well as boats from the Boating and Fisheries patrol and Marine Safety Queensland, are conducting patrols and warning people not to swim in the waters close to the incident.

The last shark attack in the Whitsunday Islands before the latest spate occurred on February 13, 2010, off Dent Island where 60-year-old tourist Patricia Trumbull survived lacerations to her buttocks and major blood loss.

A man has been killed by a shark in the Whitsundays.

Craig Barwick, the husband of Cid Harbour shark attack survivor Justine Barwick, has said previously while drum lines were an understandable solution, sharks play an important role in the ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef.

Justine Barwick, a 46-year-old tourist, was attacked September 19 while swimming from a yacht in Cid Harbor and is recovering.

Drum lines are aquatic traps that use a series of buoys and baited hooks to lure sharks.

"We really need to be smarter than what we have been and actually learn from these things as opposed to just going out and killing animals", Dr Chapman said.
