LATEST: The victim of Courtney Love's bizarre stage-diving incident in New York last week has been named - freelance photographer DARA KUSHNER.

Kushner says she was hurt when Love launched onto her at the BOWERY BALLROOM on Thursday night (18MAR04) - less than a day after the rocker was arrested for allegedly throwing a microphone stand at fan GREGORY BURGETT.

The photographer, who was stretchered out of the venue by paramedics, was treated for a bruised and swollen neck at the BETH ISRAEL MEDICAL CENTER and released.

It still isn't clear if Kushner plans to press charges.
