On Saturday night, a passenger aboard a Cathay Pacific flight reportedly tried to slash his own throat and then hang himself as the plane was landing in Hong Kong.

According to The Standard, a 31-year-old Nepalese man was flying on Cathay Pacific Flight CX411 as it traveled from Incheon International Airport in South Korea to Hong Kong when he locked himself in a bathroom as the aircraft was about to land.

Flight crew members attempted to get the man to leave the bathroom before the plane made its landing, but he refused. Once the flight landed, attendants managed to unlock the bathroom door and found the man bleeding from his neck and discovered evidence that he was trying to hang himself.
