A Nickelback fan, 22-year-old Kevin Beaudette was injured on Tuesday night after he fell into a gorge while trying to sneak into a Nickelback concert at Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
Beaudette who lives near New York's Tupper Lake slipped down a creek embankment near the merchandise tent as the officials told Times Union. The Saratoga Springs Fire Department helped in rescuing this injured man and confirmed that Beaudette was in a highly intoxicated state when he tried to sneak into the Nickelback concert and fell down into the gorge instead. He was immediately taken to the Albany Medical Center Hospital for treatment.
Baudette who claimed to be a big fan of this Canadian rock group did not have a ticket to this show but still wanted to watch them perform. He was in an intoxicated state when he fell into the gorge and a medical crew rushed to the stop immediately to rescue him. After the medical crew's failed attempt to rescue him, the Fire Department was called and they finally managed to get Beaudette out of the gorge.
This is the second incident where a fan was injured at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in New York. Early this July, a 19-year-old female was reportedly hurt when she fell off a 25 foot light pole while trying to climb it. This was during a Phish concert.
Christina Das was from Rochester, New York broke both her ankles and one wrist in the fall and was, like Beaudette was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
