Saving a Young Terror Victim's Life

Yesterday (Oct 12), one of The Fellowship’s coordinators in Jerusalem literally saved the life of the 13-year-old boy who was stabbed during one of four local terror attacks. At the moment, the Fellowship staffer is recovering psychologically from the trauma, so we don’t have the complete story, but this is what we do know.

Yesterday afternoon, the Jewish boy was riding his bicycle outside a candy store when a 13-year-old Palestinian terrorist and a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist armed with knives attacked him. The Jewish boy, who is still in critical condition, was stabbed nearly a dozen times in the upper part of his body, including one of his main arteries. The Fellowship staff member happened to be outside of her office on her way to a grocery store when she heard the boy crying that he had been attacked. Very cool headedly, she picked up a cloth from the ground and applied a tourniquet to stop the bleeding. She held the boy in her arms until the arrival of the ambulance. The doctor who operated on him at Hadassah Medical Center said on TV that without this he would have died.
