Two jet ski riders have narrowly escaped serious injury after rocks were thrown at their vessel from a bridge at Maroochydore yesterday.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident at approximately 3.15pm on November 13 where two 17-year-old boys were travelling on a jet ski eastbound along Cornmeal Creek when a group of people threw large rocks at them from the Duporth Avenue Bridge.

The boys were forced to take evasive action and swerve, resulting in them colliding with one of the bridge pylons.

The pair were both thrown from the jet ski into the creek. The driver was transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital with a wrist injury.

The vessel suffered irreparable damage estimated to be worth around $8000.

Preliminary information suggests the group involved may have been five or six teenagers, mostly boys and one girl. Three people in the group had bicycles and were last seen fleeing towards Ocean Street.

One of the boys was wearing a black shirt with red shorts and carrying a black backpack.

Senior Constable Murray Lyons from Sunshine Coast Water Police said the matter could have resulted in serious injury or even death.

"We would appeal for anyone who may have been in the vicinity around Cotton Tree or Ocean Street at the time of the incident and may have seen the group involved to come forward," Senior Constable Lyons said.

"Police take matters such as this extremely seriously."
