Australia: Doctor killed by shark in Queensland

3rd shark attack off Australian tourist island in 7 weeks

A 33-year-old man was killed by a shark on Monday evening, after being attacked while swimming off a yacht near Cid Harbor at the Whitsunday Islands.

LNP leader Deb Frecklington said Labor needed to explain why one of the only areas of Queensland without drumlines or netting, the Whitsundays, had three shark attacks in six weeks, accusing the government of organising a "talkfest".

A rescue helicopter with a critical care paramedic on board flew to the scene with the man airlifted to Mackay Hospital where he later died due to significant blood loss.

"We need to now have the scientific background and investigation of what is causing this sudden spike of attacks and interactions with sharks".

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

Musk showed a video of the high-speed tunnel under Los Angeles
The Tesla founder had announced earlier this year that he expects to travel to India in early 2019. However, the country is still open to a collaboration with Musk's company for a local factory.

"When the man got off the paddle boat and into the water, he was bitten by the shark".

They anchored 23 kilometers from Airlie Beach in Cid Harbor, intending to spend their first night in the protected mooring location on Whitsunday Island, the largest uninhabited island of the group, O'Connell reported.

Prof O'Connell said Dr Christidis showed "amazing patient care" on one occasion getting an upset patient a cake on her birthday. It wasn't immediately known what type of shark attacked Christidis.

"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".

The middle-aged man was believed to be a tourist, and was bitten on his left inner thigh, right calf and left wrist after swimming in the bay on 5 November.

In a first, 2 Muslim women get elected in US Congress
She will succeed the first Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, who vacated the seat to run in Minnesota's attorney general race. While Omar campaigned on a similarly progressive platform, which calls for universal healthcare and tuition-free colleges.

Insp O'Connell said Dr Christidis' friends were "extremely distraught".

At that time, the Queensland Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner urged visitors to the area to remain vigilant "and to avoid swimming to reduce the risk of any further shark attacks".

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

"All the agencies are working together to ensure people are being warned in the area now - do not swim in Cid Harbour", he said.

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