Four-year-old Christchurch victim remains in critical condition

One of the youngest victims of the Christchurch mosque shooting has had eight surgeries and remains unconscious more than a week after she was shot three times.
Wasseim Alsati and his four-year-old daughter, Alin, are continuing their brave fight for life after they were viciously shot multiple times by a lone gunman at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch NZ last week.
The pair were at the entrance to the mosque when Alsati saw a man holding a gun. As soon as the gunman saw him, he loaded his automatic gun and pointed it at his daughter’s face.
By the time Alsati pulled his daughter away he hit her with two bullets – one in her back, up to her tummy and one in her big finger.
Last week a gunman callously opened fire at Muslim worshippers at two mosques, leaving 50 people dead and 48 gravely injured.
Alin was with her father when she was shot up to three times in last week’s rampage. Her father was shot multiple times and was seriously injured.
Alsati and his wife are anxiously waiting for their daughter to wake up from her eighth operation at Auckland’s Starship Hospital.
The hospital say she remains in a critical condition.
