Eitam Lachover is an Israeli reporter who clearly drew the short straw when he was given the "get not stabbed" beat then actually got stabbed, as this video from the BBC shows. Amid higher-than-usual alarm in the country over terrorism and attacks on the West Bank, Lachover on Wednesday filmed this segment about a magical vest that promised to prevent stabbings. The company's vice president, Yaniv Montakyo, takes out a big steel knife and proceeds to ruin his business by loudly puncturing the vest on the third strike. He also punctured Lachover. Mantov can be heard saying he "missed" (which would have been better) before asking the stoic Lachover if he is ok. Then they cut back to the rest of the program. Haha, cut back.
