Hadassah Saving Victims of Terror

It was only a few short days ago that a bomb went off on a bus in Jerusalem, sending 21 people to the hospital.

Those brought to Hadassah included a young woman in her 20’s in serious condition, and a 25 year old man in moderate condition. Professor Avraham Rivkind, Head of the Shock Unit at Hadassah Hospital, was on the scene to use his extensive experience to save these people’s lives.

Rachel Dadon and her daughter were next to the bus when it exploded and as a result, were injured in the attacks. Rachel shares, “I looked for my daughter and found her all burned.” Rachel’s daughter Eden, who is only 15 years old, is now on a respirator and on the slow path to recovery.
