A 21-year-old musician is lucky to be alive after his head was impaled on a spiked metal fence during a fall from a balcony. The incident happened at around 4 a.m. Saturday at a party in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. Police said Nicholas Blossom was intoxicated when he fell from a third-floor balcony onto the second-floor balcony of an adjoining building, landing head-first on the fence.

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.
