Teen with hand cut off jokes ‘how am I going to w*** now’ after machete attack

A teenager who had his hand chopped off in a machete attack joked afterwards "how am I going to w*** now", according to a neighbour.

Neighbours spoke of the horror of seeing the 18-year-old's hand completely severed in the attack in Leeds on Tuesday evening.

One local resident who came to his aid before the ambulance arrived said he was initially in agony.

But they added that he made the gag afterwards as he waited to be taken to hospital, Leeds Live reports.

The neighbour, who preferred not to give him name, said: "He was obviously screaming in pain – which we all heard. 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*** now?!"

The teenager was rushed to hospital after his hand was "completely severed" in the vicious attack.

Neighbours came to his aid and put a belt around his arm to apply pressure to the wound and bandaged it up.

They reported that the shocking incident was like seeing something out of a "horror film".

One said: "It was absolutely horrific. His hand was literally on the road – it's not an image you forget."

Police have set up a large cordon in the area while forensic investigators comb the street for evidence.

"We have already spoken to a number of witnesses but would still like to hear from anyone who saw any part of the incident or who has any information that could assist the investigation.
