(Sky News) A father has saved his baby son from being dragged away by a pack of wild dogs at an Australian holiday home.

The family were sleeping when a dingo entered the caravan – and the parents woke up to the sound of their 14-month-old boy’s cries fading as he was dragged away.

Running outside, the father fought off several dingoes to rescue his son, who suffered deep cuts to his head.

Air ambulance pilot Frank Bertoli, who attended the scene at Fraser Island in Queensland, praised the parents’ “quick thinking”.
