- Parents break silent after dingo has pulled his 14 month old boy out of the camp
- Family slept in their caravan at the campsite on Fraser Island
- A dingo loosened the canvas flap and tried to run away with the young boy
- The parents woke up to the screams and the father fought the dingo to save a child
The parents of a baby boy who was dragged out of their caravan with a dingo broke their silence when they almost lost their child.
The father describes the horrific ordeal in an exclusive interview with 60 minutes, broadcast on Sunday.
He briefly recalled the moment when wild animals attacked his 14-month-old son on Fraser Island, off the coast of Queensland, on April 19.
& # 39; The dingo has him at the back of his head and drags him along & # 39 ;, he said.

The family slept well in their caravan on a designated campground near Eurong, when the boy's parents were awakened by the screams of their child.
& # 39; We woke up a little after twelve, & # 39; the mother said, wiping away tears.
& # 39; And his scream went out inside the camper. & # 39;
The intention is that at least two wild dogs have entered the camper trailer in the early hours of Friday morning.
A dingo managed to loosen the canvas flap before it grabbed the baby and tried to risk its daring escape.
By the time the parents discovered where their child was, the 14-month-old was already meters away from the trailer.
& # 39; The parents woke up with the toddler crying and heard the crying farther away from the campervan, & # 39; told paramedic Ben Du Toit ABC at the time of the attack.
The father intervened and said that several dingoes began to circle him in a backpack as they became & # 39; more arrogant & # 39; were.
In spite of the threat, he managed to repel them and save his injured child who was in & # 39; lots of blood & # 39; was sitting.
The boy suffered a broken skull and deep cuts on the back of his neck and head.
He was flown to Hervey Bay Hospital before being taken to Queensland Children's Hospital in Brisbane.

The incident is reminiscent of the allegations Lindy Chamberlain made in 1980 when her nine-week-old daughter Azaria disappeared during a family camp in Uluru, central Australia.
Mrs. Chamberlain said a dingo was taking her baby, but she was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1982 after being found guilty of murder.
She was not acquitted until a piece of Azaria & # 39; s clothing was found near a dingo cave. She later received $ 1.3 million in compensation.
