Girl to be transferred from Hamilton Island to have bite on foot treated, while woman was bitten on leg A girl and a elderly woman have been bitten by a shark in the Whitsundays, continuing a spate of attacks in the popular north Queensland region. The pair had been in shallow waters at Catseye Beach on Hamilton Island when they were attacked about 9.30am on Thursday, a Queensland ambulance spokesman says. The woman was treated at Hamilton Island Medical Centre for a wound on her right leg, while the girl has been transferred to Proserpine Hospital for further treatment to a bite to her foot. Neither injuries are life-threatening, with Hamilton Island operators believing the shark was less than a metre long.
