TV reporter stabbed demonstrating ‘knife-proof’ vest

An Israeli reporter has been accidentally stabbed – while filming an item demonstrating a stab-proof vest. Yaniv Montakyo, the vice president of the company which designed the vest, accidentally struck reporter Eitam Lachover on an area not protected by it. Mr Lachover received stitches for the wound and was discharged from hospital.

    That was kinda weird. It looked like the guy who was stabbed didn’t realize he was stabbed.

      A sharp knife and a shallow wound and you might not really feel it for a few seconds.

    Next time, make the gizmo inventor be the test subject.

    Red-dot or holographic sights improve accuracy.

    So, the Palestinian stabbers will just figure out which parts of the vest aren’t all that knife proof or they’ll go for the throat.

    This just rubs me the wrong way. I get why they’d want to develop such a vest, and I don’t blame people for wanting such protection. But at the same time, it feels like a surrender, an acceptance that this is just part of life, like the weather.

    Me: see ya!!! *runs like hell*
