A Danish man has been hospitalized after trying to kill himself with a kitchen knife following an argument with his Filipino girlfriend in his home in Pavia, Iloilo in the Philippines.

On Saturday, Arne Erhard Johansen, 70, reportedly tried to take his own life after he and his live-in parter Vangielyn Calumag, 40, had an argument over a cancelled trip, Philippine Lifestyle News reported.

Johansen used a 12-inch kitchen knife to slash his stomach, causing extensive bleeding. Calumag called for an ambulance and Johansen was rushed to the Iloilo Mission Hospital.

Chief Inspector Fernand Limbunan said the severity of the wound looked as though Johansen had been disemboweled.

It has not been confirmed whether his injuries are life-threatening.
