Terror on the Today show as crazed man in audience stabs himself in front of Matt Lauer on Rockefeller Plaza
Matt Lauer and the Today show team watched in horror this morning as a crazed man tried to kill himself as they broadcast live to the nation at Rockefeller Plaza.
At around 7.50 a.m. the individual, believed to be in an Asian male in his 50s, began to cut his own wrists with a boxcutter as he stood in the crowd which gathers year-round to watch the iconic breakfast show air.
Dramatic pictures and video from the scene reveal how Today show security staff and the NYPD rushed to intervene as the man – who never attempted to harm anyone else – collapsed in a pool of his own blood on the floor.
