Defibrillator stops knife during attack

21 May 2012, Monday /AP
A man’s implanted heart defibrillator may have saved his life in an unexpected way -- by stopping a knife. San Diego police say the 57-year-old got into an argument with an acquaintance near some elevators at the trolley station for the Fashion Valley shopping mall.

Police say the acquaintance pulled a folding knife and stabbed the man in the chest. The knife hit the man’s defibrillator, a device that shocks the heart if it gets dangerously out of rhythm. Police say the man was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. His name hasn’t been released. Authorities arrested 60-year-old Richard Kiley at another trolley station on suspicion of attempted murder. He remained jailed.
