Rapper Injures Fans After Jumping From Alexandra Palace Ceiling Into Crowd

A rapper has apologised after stage diving from the lighting rig at a north London venue into the crowd, breaking a woman's arm and injuring another fan.
George Watsky was performing at Alexandra Palace as part of the Vans Warped tour when he climbed about 30ft above the stage, before jumping into the crowd.
In a post on Facebook the 27 year old apologised for his actions, saying, "the jump was not awesome, it was not badass, and it was not ballsy. It turned what should have been a great day for the people who got hurt into a nightmare. It was stupid and wildly irresponsible, plain and simple."
The rapper, from San Francisco, was taken to hospital for examination but only suffered some nicks and bruises.
The second fan is believed to have suffered muscular injuries after Watsky landed on him.
"I'll be going back in the morning to try to apologize, but I wouldn't blame the guy if he spits in my face," Watsky added.
"I have no excuse for my actions, and the only way I can explain my mindset is that it was a huge overreach in the heat of the moment."
He denied that he was under the influence of drink or drugs at the time and said he won't be jumping off anything else while on tour.
