As they are wont to do, teens went wild at a rave in an abandoned Royal Mail sorting facility in Croydon, London this past weekend - reported the Gawker.
But one teen raver, "Josh," really knows what it means to just be there for the music, man: Even after he lost a finger ripping off a screaming fire alarm, he went on dancing, because he figured, "Fuck it, let's skank on and enjoy it." He contends that he was completely sober the entire time.
Not one to dwell on damaged phalanges, Josh wrapped his finger up with his shirt and went on dancing.
The rave wasn't all fun and games, though. Police were reportedly aggressive in their attempt to break up the rave, eventually consigning themselves to guarding the outside of the venue after it became clear that there were just too many people.
"Police were everywhere, to be honest, and they were quite violent at times—I saw one raver being jumped on and kneed in the chest when he was detained," Josh told Vice.
And 15-year-old Rio Andrew died the Monday after the rave. Police suspect his death might be drug-related.
