Deep into the first week of the most wonderful time of year, where the goon flows, where bitter, YOLO-justified failings of ye who get Swimming Pools-level drank are broadcast unashamedly to the internet; where handfuls get arrested; where famous toolies tool like they’ve never tool’d before, unfortunate news has come from
Dickhead HQ The Gold Coast, where two teens and schoolie-loving bros are recovering in hospital after suffering king hits.
On friday night, according to news.com.au, a male teen was hit to the head and fell to the ground in a pool of his own blood following an attack by three men. The incident follows on the heels of a similar attack on Thursday night, where a 17 year old was king hit to the concrete by a group of males – allegedly without provocation. The 17 year old was induced in a coma at the Gold Coast University Hospital; he has since awoken and remains in recovery. Another Australian, Matt Scarff, was also king hit this week, during a (non-schoolies related) visit to Bali.
Schoolies bros, take care of each other and just don’t be that guy during the Sickest Time Of Your Life.
