Fox at­tack girl home

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

A baby girl mauled by a fox as she slept has been dis­charged from hos­pi­tal, it was an­nounced to­day. Nine-month-old Lola Koup­paris will con­tinue her re­cu­per­a­tion at home, the royal London hos­pi­tal said. She and her twin sis­ter Is­abella were found cry­ing and cov­ered in blood af­ter the fox went into their up­stairs bed­room and at­tacked them in their cots in hack­ney, east London, on Satur­day night. A hos­pi­tal spokesman said: “The fam­ily re­main grate­ful for the many mes­sages of good­will they’ve re­ceived and con­tinue to ask that their pri­vacy and that of their fam­ily and friends be re­spected at this time.” Is­abella was trans­ferred to Great Or­mond Street hos­pi­tal in London on Mon­day night for fur­ther treat­ment. Their mother dis­cov­ered the tots look­ing “like some­thing from a horror movie” af­ter the maul­ing and de­scribed it as “like a liv­ing night­mare”. Lola had fa­cial in­juries and some punc­ture marks on her arm, while Is­abella suf­fered in­juries to her arm, she said.
