Azaria Chamberlain is forever marked in Australia’s psyche as the two-month-old baby who was killed by a dingo at Ayers Rock. But the manner of her death still grips people with horror. The cunning dingo entered the tent where tiny Azaria was sleeping and brazenly snatched her away. In fact what the dingo did was so improbable many thought it was impossible. But 40 years on, on Queensland’s Fraser Island, there was a near identical attack. As Charles Wooley reveals in this 60 MINUTES exclusive, a dingo grabbed a 14-month-old baby boy from inside the camper trailer where he was sleeping. As the child was being carried away in the jaws of the wild animal, his crying woke his parents who, in the nick of time, were able to rescue their son as he was being dragged away into the bush.
