Man accidentally stabbed on TV while testing stab-proof vest

An Israeli reporter was accidentally stabbed live on air whilst being filmed testing a new stab-proof vest.

Israeli reporter Eitam Lachover was in the process of filming a story about protective vests when the owner of the company that produces the knives says he would like to test it.

Eitam says, “You’re going to stab me with this?” before being reassured, “Yes. You have nothing to worry about, we are very confident in our product. This product can protect from knives that are stronger than this one, may I? Don’t be afraid, if something happens, I’m here.” Eitam makes a praying motion with his hands before he is stabbed four times. You can see on the third stab, the knife goes through an unprotected area of the jacket and Eitam flinches, but keeps a straight face.

Mr Lachover was taken to hospital for stitches where he later tweeted he was to make a full recovery.
