Sydney surfer Sam Page is in intensive care after being “bashed” by a bouncer at Players in Surfer’s Paradise. Page was celebrating his 21st birthday when, while being escorted out of the club, a bouncer punched him so hard that he was immediately knocked out and fell backward down a flight of stairs to the sidewalk below.
Mr Page is in the intensive care unit of the Gold Coast Hospital with serious head injuries. . . The bouncer, 32-year-old Eugene White of Labrador, faced Southport Magistrates Court today charged with grievous bodily harm.
Our thoughts are with Sam’s family and friends.
