Really, man?

A 22-year-old man fell into a gorge while trying to sneak into a Nickelback concert on Tuesday night, the Times Union reports.

Kevin Beaudette, of Tupper Lake, New York, wanted to slip into the Saratoga Performing Arts Center undetected to see the Canadian rock group perform, but instead fell 40 feet into the Geyser Brook Gorge, according to msnNOW.

"This guy was acting on his own in a highly intoxicated state near a gorge," Dan Keefe, a spokesman for the state office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, told the Times Union.

The Saratoga Springs Fire Department retrieved Beaudette after medical crews failed to get him out of the embankment, a Saratoga Springs firefighter said to the Times Union.

Beaudette was rescued in a basket and taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital, where doctors treated him for bruises and cuts, according to the Times Union. He was released on Wednesday. No charges have been filed against him.
