A 19-year-old woman suffered numerous injuries, including broken legs and a broken wrist, after plunging 25 feet from a light utility pole Sunday night at a Phish concert in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., according to local reports.
New York State Park Police said the woman was naked and under the influence of drugs or alcohol when she climbed the temporary light pole, mumbled something incoherent and fell around 9:30 p.m. She was in stable condition as of Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile, authorities also said they made at least 50 arrests during the three days of Phish concerts at Saratoga Performing Arts Center, most of them for drug possession and sales.
Police said they seized cocaine, heroin, LSD, Ecstacy, hallucinogenic mushrooms, hash, marijuana and nitrous oxide as well as two loaded rifles. Some concertgoers also were charged with possession of bath salts, which were recently outlawed in New York because of their potentially deadly chemical compounds.
