One of the first people on the scene of the mosque shooting near Hagley Park says he helped care for a five-year-old girl who had been shot, and was critically injured. Carl Pomare says he was driving near the park when he saw people running for their lives. "The first guy we saw lying on the ground had been shot in the back… there was one little girl, probably about five, she'd been shot." Mr Pomare says the girl was in a critical condition, and the man died in his colleague's arms.
