A 15-year-old Loganlea boy was charged with grievous bodily harm on Thursday morning.

He joins the 14 and 16-year-olds charged over Wednesday morning's attack.

EARLIER: Doctors will today try to bring Gold Coast auto technician Thom Dover out of an induced coma, after he was critically injured by a coward's punch in Surfers Paradise.
