      Internet Celebrity 'Kai' Rushed To N.J. Hospital From Jail

      ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) -- The man who became known online as Kai, the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker, remains under guard at a hospital recovering from self-inflicted wounds.

      Caleb McGillivary was rushed from the Union County jail in New Jersey to a hospital with self-inflicted, non-life threatening injuries on Wednesday.

      Union County spokesman Sebastian D'Elia says the 24-year-old was later taken to another health care facility, where he remains under guard by sheriff's officers.

      D'Elia did not give details about the injuries.

      The Canadian is held on $3 million bail, charged in the May 12 beating of 73-year-old lawyer Joseph Galfy Jr. of Clark.

      McGillivary gained a measure of online fame in February after intervening in an attack on a California utility worker in which he described using a hatchet to fend off a further attack.
