    UK - Girl, 4, injured in attempted murder-suicide, Cornwall, 28 May 2015

    A man has died of internal injuries and a young girl has been airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after an 'incident' in Whitecross, near Polruan, Cornwall. Police say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

    Just for information - there are some large cliffs by the coast in this area.

    Really don't like the sound of this. If there had been a terrible accident, police wouldn't be calling it an incident, in my opinion.

    Police were called to an address, so this isn't people going off a cliff. This article says it is the young girl who has serious internal injuries, and she and the 40-year-old man are 'known to each other'.

    Local press photographer calling this tragic incident and not accident, as well.

    Paul Williams (@Kernowsnapper) tweeted at 10:18pm - 28 May 15:

    Officers were sent to the property after concerns were raised for the welfare of the occupants.

    No link yet but I strongly suspect this thread will need to be moved to crimes against children by morning, UK time.

    The child was stabbed. A knife's been recovered from the scene, it's believed.

    I wonder if this will turn out to be another dreadful custody dispute/marital breakup gone wrong?

    The 'very young girl' remains in serious but stable condition.

    From your link, mrazda. What many of us suspected, I think.

    "I came down from the stairs and I heard somebody shouting for help so I looked out of the kitchen window and seen this lady sitting out on the patio, so I went out to see her and all I could see was blood everywhere and she said, "Her father's just stabbed her. Can you help me? Help me please, help me"... she was going.*

    Man named as Stephen Coops aged 40.

    "In 2011 Coops deliberately crashed his car at 60mph in Pembrokeshire in an attempt to kill himself. But after failing, he admitted dangerous driving and was detained under the Mental Health Act"

    I just read in The Sun (no I didn't buy it!) that in the crash 4 years ago he had "tried to wipe out his entire family". Apparently they - him, wife, 3 kids - were driving somewhere on holiday and he deliberately crashed at 60mph. All survived, he was detained under MHA.

    Awful to say but it sounds like they will be safer without him. Horrible situation.
