A newborn baby is fighting for life in hospital and her 25-year-old father Juan Daniel Visagie has been charged as police investigate how the young child received her critical injuries.

The 30-day-old girl was taken by family to Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital on Friday, September 4 just before midnight.

It is believed the child received the injuries at her Gosnells home. She remains in a critical condition.

Mr Visagie, from Gosnells, has been charged with grievous bodily harm. He was refused bail and is in custody at Hakea Prison.

He posted to social media about his daughter in August who he said was "perfect".

“It’s always the best feeling in the world finishing work and coming home to my baby girl she’s perfect and growing so fast,” he wrote.
