THE man who stabbed himself in Sidcup last Thursday has died in hospital.

He was in a stable condition but then took a turn for the worse last night and died as a result of his injuries.

Police have not yet released details of the man’s name.

A post-mortem examination is set to take place in due course.

It is thought he stabbed himself in the stomach area before being flown to Royal London Hospital by an air ambulance which took off from The Green nearby.

The man in his 20s was found in an alley behind Sidcup library in Hadlow Road at around 3pm last Thursday (December 5).

It is thought he used a kitchen knife from a pack of four which he stole from the 99p Store in the High Street just round the corner from where he was found.

Obviously he was off his head and luckily he didn't attack and injure anyone else. Still it's sad to hear that he died ...what a waste of life. RIP.

This is very sad and the relisation of what a single stab wound can do. I wished the man ok, but this was not to be God bless him and his family and friends. When your in a dark place and isolated your alone, this is not the answer just a sad end and waste of life.

I find it hard to pay tribute to someone who injures/kills themselves purposely. I accept that 'the victim' may not have been of normal mindset but to shopllift a knife and then self harm, suggests a carefully planned action to me? I just hope he left an explanation for his family and friends to help ease their loss. RIP
