Channel 12 airs a segment on Ben Binyamin and Gali Segal who were engaged a week before the October 7 onslaught
They were attending the music festival in Re’im near the Gaza border when the massacre began.
When the rocket barrages began, the couple along with a friend fled the scene and saw a police officer who motioned for them to enter a roadside bomb shelter near the Alunim Junction where other rave attendees had crammed inside.
After a short while terrorists arrived at the scene and began firing at the entrance of the bomb shelter. Binyamin and Segal were toward the back and were not hit. But then the terrorists hurled a grenade inside, at which point they both lost consciousness.
When Segal woke up she realized that her right leg had been blown off and started screaming. Binyamin — in a similar state of shock after suffering from nearly the same injury — kissed her and urged her to save her energy.
A police officer arrived at the scene shortly thereafter and helped secure the area. He flagged cars evacuating the wounded to take the two to a hospital.
Binyamin — who is a professional soccer player for the Maccabi Sha’arayim team — was briefly separated during the evacuation but reunited at the hospital later that day.
The couple remains hospitalized as they embark on their long road to recovery together.
