FMS Enterprises Migun insists the knife did not penetrate Eitam Lachover's protective vest.
Reporter Eitam Lachover was slightly injured while filming a report for Channel 1 news about protective vests. Lachover was testing the vest, which is being marketed as a preventative measure against stabbings. The test was unsuccessful and the knife injured Lachover, who was given first aid by the employees of the vest manufacturer. He was then sent to a hospital to have his wound stitched and subsequently sent home.
A film of the event will be broadcast today on Channel 1's Mabat new program with Ya'akov Eilon. No response from Lachover was available.
FMS Enterprises Migun Ltd. (TASE: FBRT), the manufacturer of the vest, said, "The knife did not penetrate the vest. The reporter moved during the demonstration, and the "stabber" missed the vest. The reporter was stabbed slightly above the vest. Our material has been tested in laboratories all over the world, and was found to have met the most stringent standards - far beyond the stabbing ability of a human being."
