A man has been speared in the arm after a hedge jumping prank in Cairns.

The man suffered a significant injury after diving into a hedge near the The Esplanade on Sunday night.

Paramedics who went to his aid said he suffered a traumatic penetrative injury to his arm, that also affected his shoulder and neck.

The man, aged in his 30s, was taken to the Cairns hospital in a stable condition.

Hedge jumping is a skylarking craze that sees people dive into robust hedges for the fun of it.
