Tourist, 25, dies after jumping from Queensland jetty

A 25-year-old woman has died in hospital after jumping off a pier at a popular destination in the Gold Coast.

Unlike her friends, the woman – who was holidaying in Queensland – didn't rise from the water on Thursday at Southport Broadwater, 9 News reports.

People suggested she was under for more than 10 minutes, after failing to resurface at around 4.40pm.

The woman was pulled out of the water by onlookers who also tried to perform CPR on her unconscious body, before paramedics arrived and took over.

"Bystanders started CPR prior to our arrival," Queensland Ambulance officer David Morgan said to 9 News. "(Paramedics) continued that resuscitation attempt and she's continued to the Gold Coast University Hospital in critical condition."

He described it as "quite a traumatic event" for everyone involved. "For someone to go missing like that, quite quickly, a lot of people were distressed by it," Mr Morgan said to the publication.

Sadly, the 25-year-old was not able to be saved at the Gold Coast University Hospital, and was pronounced dead.

The woman is believed to be from Asia, according to The Courier Mail.

Second tourist dies in WA

It comes as another tourist died after losing his footing and falling at a national park in Western Australia's north.

The 68-year-old luxury cruise passenger suffered a serious head injury in the fall, which happened during a shore excursion to Prince Regent National Park in the Kimberley region on Thursday.

He was flown by helicopter to Koolan Island and met by Royal Flying Doctor Service crews but died soon after.

Cruise operator True North said it was assisting the man's family.

"The guest lost his footing whilst descending a (one) metre rocky decline and fell heavily," a spokesman said on Friday.

"Crew and a doctor travelling with the group provided immediate first aid."

A report will be prepared by police for the coroner.
