Police fired a 50,000-volt stun gun at an 89-year-old pensioner after he threatened to cut his own throat with broken glass, it emerged today.

Officers use the Taser – which can trigger heart attacks and has led to the deaths of 270 people in the U.S. – after the man had escaped from a care home.

Fearing the pensioner was going to commit suicide they fired the stun gun, which pierced his body with two dart-like wires and knocked him to the ground.

North Wales Police, whose controversial chief constable famously tested the Taser on himself in 2007, insisted its use ‘was the safest and most appropriate option’.

The incident is now being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
