A 27-year-old man is lucky to be alive after allegedly being bashed by a gang of teenagers who are accused of stomping on his face and knocking out his teeth.
Shocking footage has emerged of the teenagers allegedly attacking the 27-year-old at a bus station in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast at 4.30pm on Sunday.
The 27-year-old was waiting for a bus, when a young girl approached him and allegedly asked for a cigarette, The Courier Mail reported.

When the man said no, the pair exchanged some words, before six teenage boys – believed to be the girl’s friends – allegedly started fighting with the man.
The altercation spills into the street, where the teenagers allegedly take turns to throw punches at the man, before one of the thugs repeatedly stomps on his face, police said.
As the group walk off, the man lies motionless in the middle of the road.
A follow-up video shows a concerned by-stander, who appears to lash out at the teenagers, stand over the man in the middle of the busy road.
A doctor, who was driving past, stopped to help with first aid.
The 27-year-old was then taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with a fractured jaw and some missing teeth, Sunshine Coast Daily reported.

The teenagers, aged between 13 and 16, fled the scene, but police managed to catch up with them a short time later at Sunshine Plaza.
Child Protection and Investigation Unit Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Tom Dawson told The Courier Mail the victim could have suffered seriously injuries or even death as a result of the incident, and he was considering legal options.
‘He is pretty shaken up and that may be among some of his concerns about pressing charges,’ Act Det Snr Sgt Dawson said.
All six offenders have been arrested and questioned by police.
