    A toddler has been airlifted to a Brisbane hospital with a fractured skull and cuts to his head and neck after his father snatched the boy from a dingo's jaws on Queensland's Fraser Island

    A toddler has been airlifted to a Brisbane hospital with a fractured skull and cuts to his head and neck after his father snatched the boy from a dingo's jaws on Queensland's Fraser Island


    The family were camping in a remote area of the island in the state's southeast last night when a dingo entered their campervan as the family slept.

    Paramedic Ben Du Toit says the dingo bit the toddler's neck and began dragging him away into the bush.

    He says the parents awoke with the toddler crying and heard the crying getting further away from the campervan.

    The boy's father ran outside and fought off several dingoes to rescue his son from the dog's jaws.
