Avigdor Hayut, a Bnei Brak resident who was hurt in the deadly stampede at Mount Meron, will be released from the hospital when Shabbat ends to attend the funeral of his 13-year-old son Yedidia, one of the 45 victims in the disaster on Lag B’Omer.

Meanwhile, a 52-year-old man who was seriously injured has returned to full consciousness as he’s treated at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.
