A French mother and her nine-year-old son have been airlifted to hospital after they were chased by a pack of dingoes and viciously mauled by one of the wild dogs.  

The young boy and 24-year-old woman suffered horrific islands when they were attacked at Eurong on the eastern side of Fraser Island about 5.45pm on Thursday.

A Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia the young boy suffered lacerations to his leg and face and his mother received puncture wounds to her arms.

The victims of the dingo attack are understood to be mother and son, the ABC reported. 

Michael Augustus, a spokesman for QAS, said the duo came across the dingoes after they got out of a vehicle.

'The couple both panicked and ran back towards the vehicle and it was at that time when the pack actually chased them and attacked,' he said.

QAS understands they were attacked by the same dingo.

'Paramedics are at the scene of an incident where it's reported two people have been bitten by a dingo, sustaining arm and leg injuries,' Queensland Ambulance said. 

The duo, who are in a stable condition, were airlifted to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital by the Bundaberg RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter.

The journey was a six-hour round trip and the crew did not return to the base until midnight.  

'Both patients are currently stable, with the rescue helicopter tasked to the area,' QLD Ambulance tweeted.

The Department of Environment and Science said the incident would be investigated by parks and wildlife.

They will increase patrols on Fraser Island in a bid to search for the dingoes involved in the attack.
