Woman Bitten by Shark During Day Off From Filming Shark Documentary

The definition of irony is: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result. Well I think that applies to this situation.

A 29-year-old woman who was on a day off from filming a shark documentary has been bitten by a shark near Fitzroy Island, off the coast of Cairns.

The woman suffered a 10cm bite to her left leg while snorkeling about 100 meters offshore, paramedics said.Fellow swimmers and doctors came to the woman's assistance and rendered first aid before paramedics arrived.

The woman appeared to be in good spirits, shouting "I still love sharks, they're so beautiful" and waving while being transported from the helicopter to the hospital for treatment.

"She's great she's in there (the hospital) smiling and happy." flight paramedic Terry Cumming said.

It is the third reported shark attack off the east coast of Australia in the past nine days.
