Baby boy, 14 months, is taken from inside a caravan by a pack of dingoes as his parents slept

  • At least two animals understood to have entered the caravan on Fraser Island
  • The boy’s parents woke to noises of the child, who was dragged by the head
  • An emergency helicopter was at the scene at about 2.30am on Friday morning
  • The boy was bleeding heavily, though his condition is unknown 

A 14-month-old baby boy has been taken from a caravan by a pack of dingoes as his parents slept. 

At least two wild dogs are understood to have entered the caravan on Fraser Island in the early hours of Friday morning.

The boy’s parents woke to noises of the child being dragged outside, The Courier Mail reported.  

An emergency helicopter was at the scene at about 2.30am. How the boy was freed from the dingoes is unclear. 

The boy was bleeding heavily, though his condition is unknown. It is the ninth dingo attack on Fraser Island in the last 20 years.  

The latest incident is an eerie reminder of a case which captivated Australia in 1980, when Lindy Chamberlain’s nine-week-old baby Azaria was taken by a dingo in the Northern Territory.
