Teen’s dangerous skateboarding stunt goes terrible wrong

A YOUNG man has been rushed to hospital with head injuries after he was flung from a skateboard reportedly being towed by a ute along a notorious stretch of road at Pacific Pines this afternoon.

Paramedics were called to the intersection of Pitcairn and Brockman Way around 12.07pm on Wednesday to find a 19-year-old male suffering head injuries.

First reports suggest the teen was being towed by a ute travelling down Pitcairn Way when he was thrown from his skateboard.


He’s been transported stable to Gold Coast University Hospital.
