A shark critically injured a man on Monday near an island harbor on Australia's Great Barrier reef where two tourists were mauled on consecutive days in September, officials said.
The victim was taken by helicopter to the Mackay Base Hospital, 100 kilometers (60 miles) to the south, where his condition was listed as critical, Central Queensland Helicopter Rescue Service said in a statement.
A 46-year-old tourist, Justine Barwick, was attacked on Sept. 19 while swimming from a yacht in Cid Harbor and is recovering. A 12-year-old tourist, Hannah Papps, was attacked in the same harbor the next day, losing a leg.
