Officer Anthony Rihl

Bensalem Township Police Department Bensalem PA Saves Club

Officer Rihl’s doctor informed his superior that the only reason Rihl survived his brush with death was that he he was wearing his Second Chance® body armor. Rihl and his partner had stopped a “suspicious person” and were questioning him along the side of the road when the suspect produced a knife. Both officers, stepping back to draw their weapons, backed into oncoming traffic and were hit. Rihl’s partner was thrown into the suspect while Rihl ended up 140-feet from the point of impact with multiple fractures and a shredded uniform. There were no major injuries above Rihl’s waist because his vest “distributed the shock around the trunk.”

We welcome Officer Anthony Rihl, SAVE #238, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
