A newborn baby has died in hospital from horrific head injuries after paramedics were told she was viciously attacked by her family’s two dogs.

The five-week-old baby girl was at her Moruya home, on NSW’s far south coast, on Saturday night around 10.40pm when a tragedy involving the family’s two Rottweiler-type dogs occurred.

NSW Ambulance paramedics confirmed to Daily Mail Australia they were called to the home following reports a baby had been attacked by dogs but learned she was already on the way to Moruya Hospital by the time they arrived at 10.45pm.

Others at the grisly scene told the paramedics the baby had been rushed to the local hospital in a private car. 

The baby tragically died from her severe head injuries at Moruya Hospital shortly after midnight on Sunday. 

Two Rottweiler-type dogs, which lived at the home, have since been seized by Eurobodalla Shire Council.

A spokeswoman confirmed the dogs were seized by council rangers but was unable to comment further due to the ongoing police investigation.

The spokeswoman could not confirm if the dogs have been euthanised, which is standard practice following a fatal dog attack. 

The local Animal Welfare League branch had no knowledge of the incident.

A NSW Police investigation has been launched into exactly what happened at the home and a police spokesman said the force could not provide any further comment.
