Will Rokos'Monster's Ball' screenwriter Will Rokos has something to be thankful for, and it's not just his respected Hollywood career. Rokos survived being hit in the head by an arriving subway train in New York City on Saturday afternoon, the New York Post reports.

The 57-year-old writer, who had been looking into the subway tunnel to see if a train was approaching, was thrown back onto the station platform, where fellow subway riders found him semi-conscious but alive.

Rokos is currently being treated for his injuries at New York's Bellevue Hospital. He is listed in critical but stable condition.
