In Adelaide in South Australia, a homeowner found himself in the strange position of trying to save the life of a man who was trying to burglarize his home.
The unidentified burglar threw a garden statue through the window, breaking it, but then apparently slipped on a piece of the statue. He fell, slashing his throat on a jagged piece of window glass.
The middle-aged resident, who asked not to be identified, found the man outside in a pool of blood when he went to investigate. He tried to staunch the blood flow with towels, but he said the man's throat looked "looked like an axe had hit it." The burglar died while the homeowner continued to try to save him.
