A two-year-old boy has tragically died after he was attacked by two dogs at a country roadside motel. 

The toddler was savaged at the Country Gardens Motor Inn in Cowra, in NSW’s central-west, just after 10am on Tuesday morning.

He sustained significant injuries to his neck and face and was rushed to Cowra Hospital by witnesses and then airlifted to Westmead Hospital in Sydney where he died in the afternoon.

Police confirmed both dogs have been seized by council – with two local sources telling Daily Mail Australia the dogs involved were Rottweilers.
