     ATTACK A shark has bitten two people within 24 hours in Australia

Marine Biologist Blake Chapman said it's more likely the Cid Harbour attacks were a mistake by sharks that had strayed into the area due to changed environmental conditions, such as prey movement.

The parents of Hannah Papps requested the following statement be issued on Friday: "We would like to thank everyone who has helped and cared for Hannah, including the police, emergency services and the hospital teams".

Ms Barwick has also been transferred to Brisbane and is in a stable condition in the intensive care unit at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.

"We ask that everyone, including the media, please respect our family's privacy during this very hard time so we can focus our energies on Hannah's recovery".

A 12-year-old is in a serious condition after being attacked by a shark - the second incident in 24 hours at the tourist spot.


Justine Barwick, 46, was badly mauled by a shark on Wednesday evening and a 12-year-old girl was attacked yesterday afternoon.

"I have been in constant contact with both families and wish them the very best for the recovery of their loved ones. Our staff and the broader community are feeling a great deal of shock".

The Royal Flying Doctor Service delivered her to the specialist care she needs after her holiday turned to horror.

Her two daughters plan to fly from Tasmania to Queensland when their mother is less heavily sedated.

A spokeswoman for the Royal Flying Doctor Service confirmed the 12-year-old girl from Melbourne is scheduled to be flown via fixed wing aircraft to Brisbane from Mackay Airport at 10am.

Drum lines will be set today after two tourists were critically injured in separate attacks at Cid Harbour in Queensland's Whitsunday Islands.

The girl was air-lifted to hospital after being bitten on the leg while swimming in the Whitsundays in northeastern Australia, first responders said.

Mr Krause said various types of whaler species as well as bull and tiger sharks can be found in waters around the harbour and he advised against swimming in or near Cid Harbour for the time being.

She had "fairly large wounds" on her thigh and suffered significant blood loss but did not lose consciousness.

She will then be taken to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital for further treatment.

The incident occurred within 24 hours of an attack on a Tasmanian women in the same area.
