Almost three years after falling in love with a woman he met after being seriously injured in a bus bombing, Daniel Fahima married the volunteer who nursed him back to health this week.
Fahima was among 30 injured and seven killed at the airport in Burgas, Bulgaria in July 2012 in what Israel said was a Hezbollah bombing orchestrated by Iran.
While hospitalized in critical condition, he met Dana Levi, a volunteer at the hospital, who helped him recover from his injuries.
“From the moment we met we haven’t parted,” Fahima, a resident of a Haifa suburb, told Channel 10 news. After a full recovery, the two got hitched this week.
“I came to visit him at the hospital in order to do some kind of good deed and immediately there was a click,” Levi said. “At the beginning the recovery process wasn’t easy, but we overcame it and we succeeded.”
Fahima said his two best friends, who were among those killed in the blast, would be dearly missed at the wedding.
