With the threat of rocket fire from one of Israel’s neighboring countries – a young designer has come up with a solution for worried parents sending their kids back to school this fall.
FOX News Radio’s Emily Wither has the details from Jerusalem:
Here in Israel for some communities living near the border – rocket fire is a constant worry. But one Israeli says she’s found a solution in case kids don’t have time to run to for cover… a personal shelter of their own in the form of a backpack.
(Raam) “The first time I heard sirens, I needed to go down to the bomb shelter and then a question came to me, what do people do when there is no bomb shelter nearby?”
27-year-old designer Hila Raam.
(Raam) “What we are supposed to do is lie on the ground and protect our head only with our hands.”
The wearer can pull two togs and the backpack forms a protective shield around them, complete with a hood – protecting all the vital organs.
It’s a bit pricey at $450, but Raam hopes maybe the government here will subsidize her product for worried Israelis.
