A ‘hard-working’ father of two is fighting for life after being cowardly beaten while trying to help a woman who was allegedly assaulted.
Kairan Mahia, 29, was hit from behind when several fighting broke out between a large crowd on Sorrento Quay, in Hillary’s Boat Harbour, in Perth, at around 4:30 am on Sunday.
Mahia suffered serious head injuries and was rushed to the Royal Perth Hospital, where doctors immediately placed him in an artificial coma to stop the bleeding in his brain.
The Western Australian Police made a desperate appeal to witnesses and asked the public to upload cell phone or dashcam footage of the incident directly to their website.

Mahia’s wife Lisa is ‘in shock’ and has not left her husband’s side since she received a shocking phone call that he had been rushed to hospital
The personal trainer’s wife, Lisa, is “in shock” and does not leave his side as his family prays for his recovery.
Friend and colleague James Clarke said Mr Mahia, who has two daughters aged five and ten, was on a rare night out to catch up with his brother as the tragedy unfolded.
“He saw an altercation between a boy and a girl and he came to her aid and was hit,” Clarke told the Daily Mail Australia.
Mr. Mahia is known to have been hit from behind and fell heavily during the incident.
Police say they found him at the scene with ‘severe head injuries’.
“I’m not sure if it was the man who attacked the girl or someone else in the group,” Mr. Clarke said.
“He’s a very calm, soft-spoken man. He is a family man through and through and everything he does is for his child and his wife,” he added.
Mr Clarke received a phone call saying that Mr Mahia is ‘in the ICU in Royal Perth and has a brain haemorrhage and will be monitored’.
It is understood that Mr Mahia will be monitored for 48 hours and will either remain in the artificial coma or take him out “to assess his condition”.
“I am devastated for him, his wife and children. I still don’t believe it happened.’
Police were called to a disturbance at Sorrento Quay in Perth at 4:30 am and are requesting witnesses and video evidence to be uploaded to a WA police website

A statement from WA Police said “Joondalup detectives” want to hear from the public to assist with investigations.
“Around 4.30am, police were called to the Sorrento Quay car park after reports of a large number of people causing a disturbance and several people fighting,” the statement said.
On arrival, police found a 29-year-old man with serious head injuries. He was transported by ambulance to the Royal Perth Hospital and is in a critical but stable condition.”
Mr Clarke has a GoFundMe page to help the family financially as they prepare for Mr. Mahia’s long road to recovery.
By Tuesday afternoon, more than $25,000 of a $50,000 goal had been raised by more than 300 donors.
