WANTAGH, N.Y. (AP) — A man is recovering in the intensive care unit of a Long Island hospital after police say he leaped from the upper deck during a Phish concert at Jones Beach Theatre.

New York State Park Police say the man jumped from the top deck to a seating area about 25 feet below during Wednesday night’s concert. He was then airlifted to Nassau University Medical Center. He was not identified.

A spokeswoman said Thursday the man was in critical, but stable, condition.

One spectator below reported a minor injury. Police didn’t say whether the jumper will face charges.

At least two concertgoers said the injury took place during an intermission in the popular jam-band’s performance.

The show continued after the intermission without incident.
