TV Reporter Stabbed in the Back in Botched Knife-Proof Vest Demo

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Ah, Sod’s law. TV reporter Eitam Lachover took a knife to the back this week, while filming a news piece about a, ahem, stab-proof vest. Thankfully, he's alright. Yaniv Montakyo, a vice president at FMS Enterprises, the company that makes the vest, was the guy who stabbed him. He managed not to injure Lachover in a practice run, but subsequently jammed his knife in an unprotected area of the vest during the proper segment. Accidentally, we hope.

The clip above shows him thrusting away with a fair bit of force, while Lachover smiles and clasps his hands together in prayer. Incredibly, he barely reacts when the knife gets through, prompting Montakyo to stab him once more, just for the hell of it. Lachover had to have his wound stitched up, and he's been discharged from hospital.
