Her condition was initially described as “serious but stable” after she was rushed to the island’s Can Misses Hospital.

But this afternoon her condition worsened and she was described as being “critical” in the Ibiza hospital’s intensive care unit.

The airport drama occurred yesterday morning.

The unnamed woman was treated at the scene so she could be stabilised before arriving at Can Misses just before midday.

She is said to have stabbed herself repeatedly in the neck just outside the chemist’s.

Pictures from the scene showed blood all over the floor of the airport terminal, said to have been busy at the time.

Police who were last night investigating were on the scene almost immediately.

It was not immediately clear if the woman was on her own or with other people at the time and what had led her to harm herself.

It is also unknown at this stage if she was about to board a flight.

A worker at the chemist’s where she bought the scissors and began stabbing herself, said: “I tried to stop her but it was difficult because she was a large woman.”

Another witness said: “There were other people in the chemist’s at the time.

“There was blood all over the floor outside before airport workers arrived to clean it once the woman had been taken away in an ambulance.”
