Doctor becomes latest victim killed by a shark in Great Barrier Reef

3rd shark attack off Australian tourist island in 7 weeks

The man, who remains unidentified, was airlifted to nearby Mackay Hospital in a critical condition after receiving CPR.

Dr. Daniel Christidis, a urologist and researcher at Melbourne's Austin Hospital, was among 10 pals who set out from Airlie Beach in Cid Harbour on a rented yacht for a five-day cruise through Whitsunday Islands, Police Inspector Steve O'Connell said.

After Monday's attack, a local politician asked the Queensland state government to install permanent drum lines around Cid Harbour, like hundreds of other places along the eastern coast line.

The Queensland Police Service extends its sympathies to the deceased man's loved ones at this hard time.

A tourist has died after he was mauled by a shark near an idyllic beach, only weeks after two other tourists were attacked in the exact same spot.

A shark killed a man in an island harbour on Australia's Great Barrier Reef where two tourists were mauled on consecutive days in September in a spate of attacks that has left authorities struggling to explain an apparent escalation in danger in an internationally renowned vacation destination. "His injuries and the reaction to those injuries was so severe that, unfortunately, he did not survive long after his arrival".

Ben McCauley, one of the RACQ CQ rescue crew members who helped airlift the man to hospital, described the scene as "gruesome", according to CNN affiliate Seven News. "A lot of blood, a lot of confusion", he said.

If Abrams wins, she will be the first black woman to become the governor of the conservative Southern state of Georgia . The Republicans, however, enjoyed a four-in-five chance of retaining control of the Senate, according to the website.

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.

Less than a day earlier, 46-year-old Tasmanian tourist Justine Barwick suffered a major injury to her upper left thigh.

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

Local dive boat operator Tony Fontes said it was important the industry was open about the warnings but that he had not seen any negative impacts since the first attack in September.

In response to September's shark attacks, Australian authorities have installed drum lines for a week - an aquatic trap to lure and capture sharks using baited hooks.

Fisheries Minister Mark Furner said in the statement that the harbor is a popular site to moor boats and the disposal of food scraps could attract sharks.

"We are talking about a very vast area and certainly I would hate that the message got out that it was safe to swim in the Whitsundays when we can't guarantee that safety", Ms Jones said on Tuesday.
