Paramedic recounts trying to save his aunt after Beersheba stabbing

One of the first responders treating victims of the Beersheba stabbing says the tragedy took a particularly personal turn.

“I was one of the first on the scene and I went to treat a victim who was unconscious. While treating her, I realized that she’s my aunt,” Yisrael Ozen says, in a statement released by the Magen David Adom emergency service. “She didn’t have any vital signs and so I had to declare her dead. I was in shock, but I needed to keep going and treat my uncle, who was there too.”
