Alek Skarlatos Busts His Nose In 'DWTS' Rehearsal

10/12/2015 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The bad luck streak continues ... Alek Skarlatos -- one of the French terror train heroes -- just suffered a broken nose, courtesy of his "Dancing with the Stars" partner. 

Our 'DWTS' sources tell us Skarlatos and his partner Emma Slater were in rehearsals Monday morning when she accidentally hit him in the face with an elbow.

We're told medics are at the dance studio right now ... checking him out. Early prognosis is ... it's broken, but he'll have to get x-rays to confirm.

Just last week -- Alek's fellow train hero Spencer Stone was nearly killed when he got stabbed four times in the chest in a bar fight. Also, Alek was supposed to be at Umpqua Community College the day the shooting happened there -- but was at 'DWTS' instead.

Alek visited Spencer in the hospital just this weekend.

Crazy footage has surfaced showing the wild street brawl that resulted in the stabbing of French terror train hero Spencer Stone ... in which you can see he was fighting at least 3 other men.  

The fight was caught on video by a surveillance camera at a nearby liquor store in Sacramento -- you can see Stone (reportedly the bigger man in the white shirt) swinging wildly at the other fighters. 

At one point, you can see one the fighters strike Stone in the chest area with what appears to be a weapon -- and his shirt almost immediately begins to turn red from the blood. 

Stone was hospitalized with serious injuries -- but now officials say he's in stable condition and he's expected to survive. 

Cops also say alcohol was a factor in the fight and insist the fight is in NO WAY connected to the terrorism incident in France. 

Investigators are currently checking out 2 nightclubs in the area for information on the suspects.
