A man armed with a knife stood in the knee-deep water threatening to kill himself Monday afternoon on Palm Beach, Florida.
Police said the stabbing suspect fled to Palm Beach where, armed with a knife, he told several people he was going to kill himself, prompting a standoff with police.
For almost four hours, the man refused to put the knife down. He spent half of that time standing knee-deep in the ocean.
Police said what may have finally made the suspect surrender were the sharks swimming behind him.
