Rachel Attias, the seven-year-old lone survivor of a car crash which killed her parents and six siblings Tuesday, was released from Hospital on Thursday morning into the care of her aunt and uncle.
The girl was released from the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa and went to her aunt Esther’s home.
Her uncle said before her release that she was the top priority of the family and “she is surrounded by love.” He said the family would raise her in accord with her parents’ values and beliefs.
Rachel’s parents and six siblings were killed early Tuesday when their minivan overturned and caught on fire on the road leading into Tiberias. Rachel was thrown from the vehicle and survived.
Later on Tuesday, Transportation Ministry Director General Uzi Yitzhaki appointed a special committee to investigate possible negligence that may have led to the crash.
