A young man knifed himself to death in the mistaken believe that the jacket he was wearing was 'stab-proof'. 

Jordan Easton, 22, from Thornaby, Teesside, was sitting in the kitchen of a friend's house when he decided to test the lifesaving properties of his top on August 23 last year.

Teesside Coroner's Court heard Easton died of a single stab wound to the chest after being rushed to the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton.

According to Teesside Live, assistant coroner Karin Welsh said: 'While in the kitchen, he took hold a knife to demonstrate it was stab-proof and sadly realised it wasn’t the case.'

The inquest heard medics battled to save Easton's life but were unsuccessful. 

Detective Superintendent Ted Butcher said Cleveland Police investigated Easton's death.  (DailyMail)
