A 28-year-old English tourist foot was amputated by a shark bite on Tuesday, which also injured a second 22-year-old swimmer by biting the calf of his leg in Australia’s Whitsundays Islands archipelago near the Great Barrier Reef, according to a local hospital.
The two men are in “a serious, but stable condition” in a hospital in the city of Mackay, Queensland, said one of its officials.
The two victims, who were on a boat trip in the Whitsundays, were attacked while playing in the water at Hook Passage, a popular “snorkeling” site, according to RACQ Central Queensland Rescue helicopter that evacuated.
“One of the patients was attacked first and it seems the shark has come back” to attack the second, told reporters at Mackay Tracey Eastwick, a Queensland ambulance manager.
Two paramedics who were also on the tour provided first aid to the two wounded, according to Eastwick.
The Whitsundays, which have long been considered a relatively safe archipelago for swimming, have been the scene of renewed attacks recently.
In January, a woman and a child were injured by a shark on the busy tourist island of Hamilton.
In November 2018, a man died after being wounded by a shark in the archipelago. Two months earlier, a 12-year-old girl and a 46-year-old woman had been seriously injured in attacks 24 hours apart.
In relation to Australian beaches, which are home to tens of millions of people each year, shark attacks are still very rare, with Sydney Taronga Zoo counting 27 in 2018.
