A pregnant woman is fighting for her life after she was hit in the head with a rock at a shopping centre in Perth’s south.
According to the police, the incident happened after a fight broke out between a group of people and a vehicle in the Karawara shopping centre’s parking lot at around 7pm on Tuesday.
After a fight broke out in the parking lot, a 17-year-old boy allegedly threw a rock at the car.
