SICKENING footage shows two Italian students high-five and hug each other after raping a helpless drunk woman in a London nightclub.
Laughing Lorenzo Costanzo, 26, and Ferdinando Orlando, 25, were today found guilty of the vile attack just six minutes after meeting her on the dancefloor.
The woman. 25, was passed between the two men each taking turns in kissing her and then dragged to a maintenance room and raped twice by each leaving her needing surgery.
The vile pair filmed the attack and rearranged her dress before abandoning the “ten out of ten drunk” victim alone in the toilets and running off.
Holding her limp body up they rearranged her dress and hid her alone in the toilets and ran off after raping her for 16 minutes at the Toy Room Club in Soho.
They were later caught on CCTV celebrating in London’s West End.
Prosecutor Allison Hunter QC said: “They can be seen hugging, high-fiving each other … laughing.”
HIGH-FIVES AND LAUGHTER
International law student Orlando and masters business management student Costanzo were today both found guilty of rape at Isleworth Crown Court today.
Costanzo collapsed in the dock and struck his head after hearing the guilty verdicts and was rushed to hospital.
They will both be sentenced at a later date.
Both men admitted watching their attack back on a mobile phone while making lewd gestures and re-enacting what they had done to the woman.
It can now be revealed for the first time 230mls of blood was drained from a wound between the victim’s legs after the rape.
A doctor reported he had never before seen such an “unusually severe injury”.
The students claimed the woman consented to sex but prosecutor Allison Hunter said she was too drunk to agree to what took place on February 25 2017.
She had been drinking since 11am to celebrate a friend’s birthday and told police she was a “ten out of ten” on a scale of drunkenness after the attack.
The woman said: “I remember being very drunk and falling over a lot and then I was in the toilets of the club in so much pain, not wanting to get out and then I remember being on the street, sitting on the sidewalk.
I was in the toilets of the club in so much pain… I could barely walk and there was a lot of bruising. I was very scared.
“I was very swollen, I could barely walk and there was a lot of bruising. I was very scared.”
Doctors also noted three bruises between her legs, bruising to her bum, shoulder and leg, plus a mystery love bite to her neck she had no recollection of.
Orlando claimed they flirted with each other and exchanged compliments but the woman told the court she has no memory of their conversation

She agreed the CCTV shows them “kissing passionately” but denied groping him between the legs.
Christina Smith of the CPS said:”These two rapists have at every turn denied responsibility for their sickening actions.
“They took advantage of a vulnerable woman, who had clearly lost the capacity to consent to sexual activity.”
