The situation was so dire, that at one point, Epstein appeared to have lost consciousness and was unresponsive.

He was “carried away” by staff, the source said.

According to the New York Post, the shamed businessman was discovered with “injuries to his neck,” and could have been attacked by another inmate.

Though two sources told NBC New York that Epstein may have tried to hang himself, another source told the outlet he may have staged the incident to get a transfer out of Metropolitan Correctional Center.

According toNBC New York, authorities questioned fellow inmate Nicholas Tartaglione, a former New York police officer who was accused of killing four men in 2016.

An attorney for Tartaglione denied he attacked Epstein.

Epstein’s attorneys did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

The financier is facing charges of sex traffickinginvolving dozens of underage girls, and has appealed a federal judge’s decision to keep him incarcerated while he awaits trial.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Epstein requested to remain under house arrest in his $77 million mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

He was denied bail.

The judge said the government had shown convincing evidence that Epstein would pose a danger to the community if freed.
