Teen hospitalised after awkward jump, Surfers Paradise

A teenager is recovering in hospital after a jump went wrong, in Surfers Paradise last night.

The male, of unconfirmed age, reportedly landed wrong after jumping off a concrete platform along the Esplanade.

Queensland Ambulance has confirmed the jump was not from a great height.


Emergency services briefly assessed the teen for potential spinal injuries just before 9.00pm.

He was then taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital as a precaution.

Queensland Ambulance was unable to confirm whether the teen was a ‘schoolie’ or not.

No other injuries were reported.
