Three men have been charged after a shocking video surfaced of a Schoolie being knocked unconscious by a single punch during a three-versus-one attack in Surfers Paradise.

Horrific video showed three men kicking the 19-year-old in the legs and feet in the early hours of Monday morning, before punching him to the ground.

It will be alleged that a 19-year-old East Lismore man was out with a female friend when she became involved in an argument with three men just after 3am, according to the Brisbane Times. 

The victim was allegedly targeted for defending her as she was ‘harassed’ outside a bar, his friend told 9NEWS.

The attackers left their 19-year-old victim unconscious and bleeding from the head on Monday 

A 19-year-old Upper Coomera man was charged with assault occasioning bodily harm and contravention of a banning order. 

Two 21-year-old Cootharaba men were charged with assault occasioning bodily harm. All three will face court on December 8.

After the attack, the teen was out cold for a few minutes and was left lying on the corner of Cavill Avenue and Orchid Avenue bleeding from the head and ears.

He was rushed to Gold Coast University Hospital with non-life-threatening head injuries just after 3.15am.

A Queensland Police spokeswoman said he was left with ‘a big egg on his head’ and ‘bleeding from his ears’, but at this stage he is expected to make a full recovery.

The 18-year-old victim is understood to be a New South Wales school student, who was visiting Queensland for Schoolies celebrations.
