A baby who was injured in a stabbing attack in Sydney on Saturday has been released from intensive care in hospital.

The nine-month-old daughter of the woman Ashlee Good, who died in the attack while protecting her baby, was in a serious condition, health officials said, the BBC reports.

The baby underwent surgery at Sydney Children's Hospital after suffering from chest and arm injuries.

Six people have died from the attack at the "Westfield" shopping center, five of whom were women.

Joel Cauchi, 40, caused panic when he started stabbing people inside the building with a long sharp tool. Cauchi was later shot dead by the police. 

The attack has raised concerns in Australia, where mass killings are very rare.

Six people, including the nine-month-old baby, were being treated after the attack, including two women who were also in intensive care, a New South Wales health spokesman said.

A GoFundMe campaign created on behalf of Ashlee Good has managed to raise $323,000 for her daughter.
