A 20-year-old woman was praised for her courage after being dragged by a shark while snorkeling in Queensland.

The commercial diver swam around 6:30 PM on the coast of Cape Grenville off the Cape York peninsula on Sunday, when she was attacked by a supposed tiger shark.

The young woman was brought to the shore by a fishing boat crew and later flown to Cairns Hospital with serious injuries from her ankle to her knee on her right leg.

Rescuers said the woman was remarkably & # 39; cheerful & # 39; was talking on the way to the hospital.

& # 39; She was stable when we arrived, and she was conscious and reasonably cheerful, given Babcock Australasia Dominic Hodalin's rescue officer against the Townsville Bulletin.

& # 39; This was the bravest patient I have ever seen – the fact that she was conscious and talking about diving all the way back during the helicopter flight, that was something. & # 39;

Rescue teams were also praised for their heroic and rapid actions that saved the lives of women.

She was treated with first aid, which prevented significant blood loss.

The woman, who works for the lobster division of marine company MG Kailis, stays in the hospital and is said to be in a stable state.
