An Israeli reporter was accidentally injured Wednesday after he donned a "knife-proof" vest and took part in a demonstration on the supposedly anti-stab technology.
Eitam Lachover of Israel's Channel 1 was in Jerusalem filming a story about a company that makes the vests, FMS Enterprises, according to CNN
. He volunteered to take part in the demonstration, which went off without a hitch on an earlier take.
But when they went to do it again, the protective material "moved a little bit down" and a FMS Enterprises employee "stabbed him in the upper part, where there was no anti-stabbing material," company CEO Avi Blum told CNN.
Lachover received a minor wound in the upper back, which required stitches.
"Superficial stab, some stitches and was released back home," he tweeted in Hebrew, according to CNN. "Thanks to everyone who expressed concern!"
The vests, which are to be supplied to Israeli soldiers, are part of a new security initiative in light of recent stabbings in Israel carried out by Palestinians, the BBC reported.
