76-year-old man tries to slit his wrists outside NBC’s ‘Today’ show
NEW YORK (AP) — A 76-year-old man yelling that the government was going to take his house slit his wrists outside NBC’s “Today” show Thursday morning before he was taken into police custody, police said.
The man, Pak Chong-Mar, was in the crowd on Rockefeller Plaza outside the “Today” studio and also was yelling about how the Internal Revenue Service was corrupt and ruined his life, authorities said. He took out a knife and sliced at his wrists, police said.
“I need people to help me fight for justice,” Pak told the Daily News of New York from his hospital bed afterward. “If I don’t do something drastic, sooner or later these guys are going to kill me anyway. I couldn’t even pay rent this month.”
