By Allison Mondell, CBS Tampa

DUNEDIN, Fla. (CBS Tampa) –  A man dressed as a pirate at Dunedin’s Mardi Gras Parade was stabbed by his own knife on Tuesday night.

The man’s pirate costume was complete with a knife and scabbard.  Police say the man posed for a picture with some teenagers after the parade on Main Street and Pinellas Trail.  One of the teens grabbed the man’s knife and pointed it at the man to pose for the picture.

Later in the evening, someone noticed blood on the pirate’s costume and called for help.  It is unclear as to how the man did not realize he had been stabbed.  He was taken to Bayfront Medical Center by helicopter and is expected to survive the injury.

Pinellas County police say the incident was accidental and they hope to talk to the teenager who may have been involved.  The fifty-six year-old man remains unidentified.
