At the East Croydon Rave last Saturday, hundreds of people were turned away because of capacity limitations at the venue, an abandoned Royal Mail sorting office, but 16-year-old Josh got to stay — and, as a result, lost his finger.

The rave was illegal, so the majority of people were forced to either stand around outside or try to get themselves into the party against the efforts of police officers trying desperately to control the scene.

Multiple people threw missiles at the police, who eventually gave up controlling the situation and resorted to just standing guard until the party broke up.

Many partygoers were taken to the hospital because of illness or injuries, including 15-year-old Rio Andrew who passed away on Monday due to drugs.

Josh, although he didn’t die, was not too lucky, either. He lost his pinky about halfway through the night from trying to pull the fire alarm.

According to Josh’s interview on Vice, he estimates that about 4,000 people showed up to the rave. At one point in the wild night, Josh jumped up to a ringing fire alarm and tried to rip it off the wall, but ended up ripping his little finger off instead.

He told Vice,

I looked at my hand and my little finger was gone – the bone was sticking out. It’s the weirdest feeling; one second you’re fine and your little finger is there, and the next second it’s gone. It shoves reality up your backside.

Josh says it was the worst pain he’s ever felt in his entire life. His friend dragged him to see paramedics, where he received some medical acid, poured it right onto his finger and watched as all the flesh around it melted away.

Upon someone in the ambulance asking what he’s going to do now, he just concluded that “sh*t happens.”

With only nine fingers and a stub, Josh continued partying. His reason? In his words, it’s the only thing you can do if ”there are fit girls around,” “the bass is hard” and “the music is popping.”

He said,

F*ck it. Let’s skank on and enjoy it.

Apparently a bunch of stoners later found his severed finger and were playing around with it at the rave.

Josh claims that he was completely sober the entire time.
