Whitsunday shark attack 2018

Woman critical after shark attack off Whitsundays

A HOLIDAY to the Whitsunday Islands turned into horror for a Tasmanian woman when she was attacked by a shark, leaving her in a critical condition overnight.

The woman, aged 46, is being transported in a serious but stable condition after being bitten while swimming in near Sawmill Bay on Wednesday afternoon.

The RACQ CQ Rescue has confirmed the patient is a woman, not a man as initially reported.

"The woman has suffered significant leg and torso injuries in the shark attack incident," the spokeswoman said.
