"We [had] two paramedics and a doctor on scene", she said.

"Justine is a fighter: a fit, resilient woman who is an outstanding leader in the aged and disability care sectors".

Mrs Barwick was pulled from the water, transferred to a yacht and moved to a dinghy to be winched up by a rescue helicopter dispatched from the coastal town of Proserpine.

He managed to stem the blood flow long enough to allow a rescue helicopter to arrive with Ms Barwick still breathing.

'He was able to assist with immediate treatment of the patient and to stabilise the serious haemorrhage that she had'.

Crewman Ben McCauley said an emergency doctor who was sailing nearby and others who gave first aid to Barwick had likely saved her life.

The woman was transported by helicopter to Mackay Base Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

The Captain Marvel trailer pulls off something fantastic
The first trailer has been wildly praised by fans and elicited some of the best reactions and memes to its content. After months and months of wait, Marvel fans can finally rejoice as the Captain Marvel's first trailer is out.

The girl, 12, was flown to hospital on Thursday also in a critical condition, Queensland Ambulance Service said.

"It is horrific ... it is quite confronting to have two similar incidents in the space of 24 hours", she said.

The Whitsundays is an island know for its glistening beaches, turquoise waters and colourful reefs on the coast of Queensland, making the area extremely popular with tourists.

The measures aim to reduce the overall number of sharks in the area, but do not provide an impenetrable barrier between swimmers and marine life.

Local authorities have reportedly warned holidaymakers and locals not to swim in the area.

A 46-year-old woman was mauled by a shark in the same area on Wednesday.

A young girl was attacked by a shark at the same Queensland island where a Tasmanian mother was mauled less than 24 hours earlier.
