CPD Officer

Saved by bulletproof vest. Today on the West side.

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A Chicago Police officer survived a brush with death Friday afternoon when a bullet struck his safety vest during a shootout that left a female gunman critically wounded on the West Side, officials said.
“Thankfully he had a vest on and it saved his life. The shot was to the center of his mass and could have been fatal,” said Dr. Kristen Donaldson, who treated the officer at Loyola University Medical Center.

    Stephanie Kwolek is the chemist who invented Kevlar in 1965. She started working as a chemist in 1946 just to earn enough money to go to medical school, to fulfill her childhood dream of becoming a doctor. She soon fell in love with the work, though, which combined her interests in science and textiles.
