Korean Pastor held wife and daughter hostage at knife-point

A 49-year-old man, surnamed Lim, jumped off a balcony of his apartment on the 17th floor, Friday, after holding his wife and daughter hostage for four and a half hours, according to police.

Jeonju Wansan Police Station said the former pastor, who suffered from manic depression, threw himself off the balcony when three members of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team attempted to enter the apartment after descending from the rooftop by rope.

He was immediately taken to a nearby hospital, but pronounced dead upon arrival. Lim took his wife and daughter hostage at knife-point at 6:50 a.m., claiming Park had tried to kill him.
