A man was rushed to hospital after he severed an artery while puncturing the tire of a car that blocked his vehicle in a parking lot, according to police in Canada.

Esquimalt police said that the incident unfolded on Thursday evening, as the 37-year-old man was leaving the parking lot of the Pearkes Arena.

When the man tried to leave the parking lot, he noticed that another vehicle blocked his car and he was unable to leave. The man got angry and pulled out a knife from his pocket.

He then punctured the offending vehicle’s tires, but in the process he stabbed himself in the leg. The man called an ambulance after losing a large amount of blood.

He was rushed to a hospital, where doctors performed surgery to correct a severed artery. Police have asked witnesses to come forward as charges against the man are pending.
