A teenager is in a critical condition after being stabbed and left wounded in a hotel elevator in Brisbane on Australia Day.
The teenager, who entered a hotel in Brisbane by walking in the doors behind guests who'd paid to stay there, entered with a group of seven other people, according to Queensland Police.
After the group made their way into the hotel about 9.20pm, an altercation broke out in one of the hotel rooms, and three of the eight people were wounded. Those suffering injuries were all males, two aged 17 and one aged 18.
The 18-year-old, Kane Alexanderson, was critically injured, suffering multiple stab wounds.
The three teenagers were taken to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital after the incident. Mr Alexanderson is now being treated for life threatening injuries.
