Emergency services rush to a remote beach in Far North Queensland after reports of a crocodile attack.
Queensland Ambulance rushed paramedics and helicopters to Archer Point, about 20 kilometers south of Cooktown on the Cape York Peninsula, after receiving reports of an attack around 12:50pm.
A spokeswoman for the organization said the crew was en route and no further information was available at this time.
The incident comes days after a 65-year-old man was bitten while sleeping on Newell Beach near Port Douglas on April 4.
He received treatment for a minor leg injury and was discharged the next day.
Following the incident, the Queensland government said it was a “timely reminder” that people were “creeping”.
Data from the Queensland Department of Environmental Science, which records and reviews all alligator reports, shows eight attacks reported between 2020 and March 2023.
