A man has died after he was stabbed while attempting to come to the aid of a woman and child involved in a domestic dispute with another man outside a home in Australia.
Police believe the 50-year-old victim had gone outside to investigate the source of the disturbance when he was allegedly stabbed multiple times and left bleeding on the side of the road in western Sydney.
Emergency services were called to the scene in Waikanda Crescent, in the Sydney suburb of Whalan, about 5.30pm on Saturday.
The man, believed to be a neighbour of his alleged attacker, was not able to be revived by paramedics, and he died at the scene.

A 19-year-old man was arrested at a home nearby and taken to Mt Druitt Police Station, where he was charged with murder on Sunday morning.
Sandra Shepherd, who lives nearby, said she saw police outside the townhouses at the end of her street.
"There was a helicopter circling, this type of thing happens a lot," she said.
"The townhouses have a bit of problems."
The woman and child in the townhouse were not injured.
The 19-year-old man was refused bail and was due to appear in Parramatta Bail Court, in western Sydney, on Sunday.
