The mother of a three-year-old boy allegedly stabbed to death by his father had passed away just years before the tragic incident unfolded. 

Police and paramedics found the toddler's body inside a unit in Riverwood alongside his father, 45, who had suffered serious injuries on Wednesday. 

Emergency services were called to the property in south-west Sydney at 4pm after receiving a call from a female relative of the father. 

It is understood police believe the 45-year-old man allegedly stabbed his son before turning the knife on himself.

Doctors at St George Hospital performed emergency surgery on the man and he is now in a stable condition under police guard. 

According to police, the little boy's mother passed away a couple of years ago with the three-year-old believed to have been living with his father.
