55-year-old man has slashed his own throat in the United Kingdom.
The man slashed his throat live on Facebook after being confronted by paedophiles hunters.
The 55-year-old was rushed to hospital before being arrested by cops on suspicion of grooming a child under 14 and possession of a bladed article.
A video appeared on Facebook showing the distressing moment he cut himself – but it has since been removed.
He is now in a stable condition after emergency services rushed to the scene in Kirkby, Liverpool.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “At around 5pm officers attended an incident near Kirkby Police Station where a man was detained.
“The man was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his throat following the incident where he remains in a stable condition.
“A 55-year-old man from Kirkby was later arrested on suspicion of grooming a child under 14 and possession of a bladed article.
“An investigation is underway and a scene in place in the area whilst officers continue witness enquiries and examine CCTV footage.
“Please be mindful that this is a live investigation and not to speculate about the circumstances of this incident as it could jeopardise our enquiries.”
