Australia’s 9News reports that Ash Good, 38, was one of six people killed in yesterday’s incident.

A first-time mother stabbed to death in the Sydney shopping centre knife rampage has been pictured for the first time. Just hours before the horror unfolded, Ms Good posted a photo to Instagram with her daughter Harriet in her arms

First-time mother Good was reportedly at the Westfield Bondi Junction Shopping Centre with her baby when the attack began.

Her nine-month-old child was also stabbed in the attack and underwent surgery in hospital.

The attacker killed five women – including Good – and a man in the rampage before he was shot dead by a police officer.

“It’s understood Good was walking through the centre with her baby in a pram when they were caught up in the attack.

“The man is believed to have stabbed the baby first, before fatally wounding Good.,” 9News reports.

One man yesterday told a 9News reporter that he had helped a mother and baby who were both stabbed.

“The baby got stabbed. The mum got stabbed and the mum came over with the baby and threw it at me… it looked pretty bad,” he said.

“There was a lot of blood on the floor.”

Another eyewitness also spoke of the traumatic scene at Westfield Bondi.

“We just tried to help with holding the baby and to compress the baby, and staying with the mother and trying to compress the blood.”
