  • A great white shark is believed to have bitten a man in the water

"At the end of the day there was four people swimming of the back of the boat cooling down after a day's work", Sen-Sgt Anderson said.

A doctor and paramedics were flown to the scene just before 6.30pm and treated the man on board the vessel before transporting him to Gladstone Hospital.

"Every one of us has a Zach shaped hole in our heart".

Zachary suffered extensive injuries to his leg and arm, and despite surviving an emergency flight he later died in Gladstone Hospital.

A man has died following a shark attack off the Queensland coast.

He said the man received treatment for his "substantial" injuries by the crew on the boat before the rescue helicopter arrived.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.

The victim worked as a ranger for the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS).

According to CBS, there have been at least three shark attacks on the Great Barrier Reef over the past 18 months.

Zachary Robba, who had a "dream job" working for the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, had been with other rangers undertaking research and essential maintenance on North West Island.

A nine-year-old girl suffered a bite wound to the back of her leg and puncture wounds to her foot during an attack in January.

The man was swimming with friends and as he was swimming back to their charter vessel, he was bitten by the shark.

He suffered minor injuries to his right hand and leg. One of the men lost his foot.

In October, two British backpackers were attacked while snorkelling at Hook Island in the Whitsunday Islands.

According to scientists, February had the highest monthly temperatures ever recorded on the Great Barrier Reef since the Bureau of Meteorology's sea surface temperature records began in 1900.
