Fox attack twin is back at home.

A BABY mauled by a fox as she slept was at home today after being discharged from hospital.

Nine-month-old Lola Koupparis was being treated at the Royal London Hospital but allowed to leave yesterday. She and her twin sister Isabella were found crying and covered in blood after the fox entered their bedroom and attacked them in their cots in Hackney 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 on Monday for treatment and later returned to The Royal London Children's Hospital.

A statement from Barts and The London NHS Trust, said: "Following a period at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, Isabella Koupparis, one of the twin nine-month-old girls being treated for injuries sustained during a fox attack in her home, has returned to The Royal London Children's Hospital to continue her treatment."

Family members said the fox attack could be "life-changing"for the twins.

Their mother discovered the tots looking "like something from a horror movie" after the mauling and described it as "like a living nightmare".
