Whitsundays shark attack victim dies

Man dies after shark attack in Australia in same spot as two other attacks

The Queensland government has ruled out installing permanent drumlines in Cid Harbour, despite deploying temporary drumlines after two shark attacks in September in the same area.

A man has died after being attacked by a shark while paddle boarding and swimming near the Whitsunday Islands in northeast Australia.

Dr Christidis suffered horrific injuries and was airlifted by RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter Service to Mackay Base Hospital where he died soon after arriving.

A doctor on holiday with a group of friends in Australia has been killed by a shark which attacked him after he jumped into the water from a paddleboard.

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

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

At the time 16 vessels were anchored in Cid Harbour and authorities warned all of them of the situation and water safety.

"If you look at white pointer shark attacks they happen between 10am and 2pm and if tiger shark are also in the middle of the day".

"It was one of the more hard ones for everyone involved".

"They all have different feeding strategies, however all of those sharks like and enjoy to take things on the surface because when it attacks it prey has now here to go whereas when it's in the water it has 360 degrees to escape".

"I believe the message we want to get across is don't swim in Cid Harbour".

46-year-old Justine Barwick and 12-year-old Hannah Papps both survived, with the young girl losing her leg.

Queensland Fisheries have deployed drum line shark baits in Cid Harbor in response to the shark attacks, according to reports.

Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner said the meeting, which will be held on Friday, would enable local industry representatives and officials to sit down directly with experts.

Prof Colin Simpfendorfer, from James Cook University, said shark attacks were "extremely rare" in the Whitsundays, but no theories had "so far been supported by real substantial information" to understand the spike in shark activity.

Tourism Minister Kate Jones today said local advice was that drum lines were not wanted.
