Two charged as girl fights for life

A GIRL is fighting for her life in hospital after she was allegedly assaulted by a group of people in Warwick on Tuesday.

The 15-year-old had emergency surgery for a brain injury and was in an induced coma after she was set upon by a group of teens about 2am in Percy St.

Two people were charged Tuesday night.

The teenager was walking with her friend from a party when the alleged assault took place.

Warwick detective Sergeant Darren Tamblyn alleged the girl was punched and kicked in the head repeatedly.

“The girl’s friend had fled to the other friend’s home to find help and call for help.

“When she took flight a shift worker returning to Warwick from Wacol ... stopped to provide first aid and call the police.”

The girl’s condition deteriorated and she was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane about 9am.

“She has now undergone emergency surgery for a brain injury and she remains in an induced coma,” Det Sgt Tamblyn said.

“Her condition will continue to be monitored over the next 72 hours.

Police said the girl remained in a serious condition Tuesday night, with life-threatening injuries.

A 16-year-old Warwick girl has been charged with assault occasioning bodily harm and grievous bodily harm.

An 18-year-old Wilsonton woman has been charged with grievous bodily harm. She is due to appear in Warwick Magistrates Court on October 11
