Indonesian woman was suspected to be distraught over family problem that she unexpectedly stabbed herself in the stomach first with a fruit knife then with a butcher knife in her home in Kwai Chung last night. Her husband, witnessing this act, hurried to pull out the knife, which got her wife to bleed more. The Indonesian woman's life was critical after being taken to hospital, and her husband also needed treatment for cuts on hand.

 

Indonesian woman (thirty-years-old) married to husband by last name Lau (46 years old) to Hong Kong a few years ago. They both lived in Hong Yam House. At eight pm last night, the victim suddenly became emotional, grabbing a fruit knife from the table to stab at her abdomin, to which Lau pulled out the knife quickly from her. Yet, the victim immediately ran to the kitchen with her stab wounds, and took out a 30cm long butcher knife to pierce through her stomach. Lau followed her, and pulled out the knife as well, and called the police. At this point, blood was pouring out from victim's wounds, and victim lost consciousness. Ambulance staff arrived to stop her bleeding and rushed her to hospital. Lau was also taken to hospital for treatment because he cut his right finger when pulling out the knives.

 

A & E specialist Pang Gei-Mao said that Lau indiscriminately removing knives for the victims could cause excessive bleeding which can lead to death. The best way to manage persons with self inflicted stab wounds was to have the victim laid flat, and applied pressure to stop bleeding. Ensure breathing and listen for pulse for the victim, and finally called the police as soon as possible to send the victim to hospital.

Hopefully the Indonesian woman is all right. The distraught must have been deeply felt, if not then she would not have stabbed herself with a butcher knife.
