A young boy has been bitten by a dingo on K’gari.
Emergency crews were called to reports of an animal attack on the northern end of the island, around 4pm on Sunday.
It’s believed the primary school-aged boy had been playing on a beach, with his parents nearby, when the dingo jumped on him and bit him several times.
The child sustained multiple minor bites before his father managed to get the dingo off him.
The boy and his family were driven by ambulance to a helipad on the island, where they were met by the Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue chopper.
The child was then airlifted, escorted by his mother, to Hervey Bay Airport, before local QAS paramedics transported him to hospital by road.
He was in a stable condition.
