Australian Woman Critical After Being Attacked By A Shark While Swimming

Miss Helen the horn shark was safely returned back to the aquarium

A teenage girl was killed in 2017 by a shark while surfing at a break in Western Australia, and a surf competition at Margaret River was cancelled after two surfers were bitten by sharks.

In a series of tweets, RACQ Rescue confirmed it had sent the rescue helicopter to Cid Harbour to retrieve the victim.

She arrived at Mackay Base Hospital in a stable condition just after 8pm.

Tasmanian tourist Justine Barwick suffered a major injury to her upper left thigh in the attack Wednesday afternoon, CNN affiliate Seven News Australia reported.

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

Nearby holidaymakers who witnessed her being rescued said "there was blood everywhere".

Shockingly, less than 24 hours later, a 12-year-old girl was attacked in a similar area.

Bush's administration, politicians are aware of the big stakes involved when a big storm sweeps ashore. During the trip, Trump also visited a church that was distributing meals to the city's residents.

The measures aim to reduce the overall number of sharks in the area, but do not provide an impenetrable barrier between swimmers and marine life.

Justine Barwick was attacked in the Whitsundays by a shark on Wednesday.

"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.

"The original first aid was actually really well done", rescue helicopter crewman Ben McCauley said.

She also suffered puncture wounds to her calf muscle.

It's understood she was bleeding heavily from a leg injury when she was pulled from the water.

"She was then treated by a doctor who was on the yacht before crews arrived, where she was transferred to a smaller dinghy and then winched by the helicopter". "She's very lucky to be alive".
