Sgt. DeBiasi, Wayne County metro Task Force CO, was using the haligan tool to pry open bars covering a wooden door of a crack house when an unknown perpetrator fired three shots from the inside of the house through the door. Two slugs hit DeBiasi, one in the chest over the heart and the other in the right rib cage area. The third shot missed completely. The shot to the heart was stopped in his Second Chance® Command Jac armor just above the metal K47 plate. The other shot careened off the vest without penetration. The weapon was an S&W 6″ .357 magnum. Mt. Carmel Hospital attending physician states, “without question, the Second Chance® vest saved Sgt. DeBiasi’s life.”
