A young musician who took a drunken spill off a second-story balcony and impaled his head on a spiked fence appeared to be out of danger a day after the terrifying accident, friends and family told The New York Post.
Nicholas Blossom is recovering from his traumatic ordeal even faster than doctors at Bellevue Hospital had predicted, said roommate Corey Mulee.
"He's doing very well. The family is really happy," Mulee said .
Blossom went to a rooftop party with Mulee in the Chelsea section of Manhattan Friday night. Sometime around 4 a.m., he wound up alone on a second-story ledge.
Blossom, who cops said had been drinking, tipped off the balcony wall and crashed headfirst into the sharp metal fence below.
"I was just getting ready for bed when I heard a boom," said neighbor James Neal, who has a view into the area where Blossom landed.
"I heard moaning, then obscenities... and then some screams for help. That's when I called the cops," Neal said.
