A teenager was killed in a shark attack at a reef off Australia's northeast coast on Monday, with ambulance officials saying he was dead by the time he reached shore.

The 17-year-old was bitten on the upper thigh at Rudder Reef off Port Douglas, about 60 kilometres (37 miles) north of Cairns, and likely died of blood loss.

"We received a call about a 17-year-old with a serious upper thigh injury," a Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman told AFP, adding that attempts to resuscitate him were made at the scene.

"A boat brought him in but he didn't survive," she added.

Queensland Ambulance Service executive manager of operations Greg Thiedecke said the boy went into cardiac arrest immediately after being bitten on his right upper leg, groin and upper arm.

"It would be speculating but (there are) a lot of large blood vessels in the groin area, so for him to go into cardiac arrest that quickly would be probably blood loss," he told the Cairns Post. (good call, stimpy. jesus.)

Damn, that's fast. And frigging severed arteries snap back up into the stumps like rubber tubes, too.....

You couldn't get me into Australian waters at gunpoint - although they say that there are now bull sharks in the Potomac....

Default Whites humane to mortal enemy. Imagine if a writhing shark were to get stranded on slanty-eyed-occupied shores:
