NEW YORK —

A 21-year-old musician has survived a fall from a New York City balcony in which his head became impaled on a spiked metal fence.

Police say Nicholas Blossom was intoxicated at a party in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood when he fell from a third-floor balcony at around 4 a.m. Saturday. They say he landed headfirst on the fence of the second-floor balcony of an adjoining building.

Rescuers used an electric saw to detach Blossom from the fence.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was in stable condition.

Blossom plays drums in a rock band called Alaska Alaska.
