The naval officer who was moderately injured in last night’s helicopter crash has been released from Rambam Medical Center’s intensive care unit as his condition has improved, the hospital says.

The officer, whose name has not been released, will continue to recuperate in the hospital’s orthopedic ward. “He is in good condition,” a Rambam spokesperson says.

The spokesperson adds a request from the officer’s family to respect their privacy and “not harass them during this complicated moment.”
