Teen, 18, makes astonishing X-rated joke to paramedics after having hand chopped off in machete attack
A TEENAGER who had his hand chopped off in a machete attack made an outrageous X-rated quip to paramedics treating him at the scene.
Despite being brutally assaulted on a street in Leeds, West Yorkshire, the 18-year-old man was in "good spirits" and even made pretty daring joke.
Shortly after 9.30pm last night police rushed to Stanks Parade, in the Swarcliffe area of the city, where the teen victim was tragically found with his hand completely severed.
One man who witnessed the vicious attack said he was "screaming in pain", describing the scene as "horrific" to YorkshireLive.
But amazingly, the man noted how the teenager managed to crack an X-rated joke to first aiders about a certain activity he'd no longer be able to partake in without his hand.
"He was obviously screaming in pain – which we all heard," the witness added.
"I mean, the lad had his arm chopped off.
"He was in good spirits – he shouted out, ‘for God sake, how am I going to be able to w**k now?!'".
Following the wisecrack, the teen was taken to hospital by ambulance for emergency treatment.
But his condition is not life threatening, according to reports.
Detectives from Leeds District CID are carrying out enquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the horrific incident.
A large scene remains in place around Stanks Parade – as forensic examinations and specialist searches continue.
