It is clear that the crowd were looking out for the youngster, as he was quickly helped out of the potentially dangerous situation.

Another video was also released to Instagram, by fellow rocker John Joseph of the band Bloodclot, where the boy can be seen dancing on the stage with the band themselves, before stage diving off and being carried through the crowd.

Joseph commented, “Special moment during the Madball set Saturday. This little boy was amazing. We all had our first stage dive once upon a time. When was yours? Mine was early 1980 – The Teen Idols and The Untouchables from DC played at The Taj Mahal in Norfolk, Va.”

In other Madball news, the band will be performing at the first edition of This Is Hardcore since 2019. The event, scheduled to take place from 7 to 10 July, takes place at the Franklin Music Hall & Underground Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They will be joined by the likes of Hatebreed, Comeback Kid and Merauder.
