Four talmidei yeshiva were injured on Monday morning 26 Shevat 5774 on their way south, to the Dead Sea. Their vehicle was involved in an accident at Zohar Junction. One of the injured was reportedly in serious condition, one moderate and the others light. An IDF helicopter was summoned to transport the seriously injured talmid to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital trauma unit.
Magen David Adom released the following statement: “We received a call for an accident at Zohar Junction at 7:59. EMTs and paramedics were dispatched and they treated male in his 20s with head injuries. He was intubated and his respirations were assisted. A chopper was summoned to transport him to the hospital.

The three others were transported to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva. The victim transported to Hadassah was taken into emergency surgery to address his head injuries.
The talmidim are from Yeshivas Ateret Yisrael. The tzibur is asked to be mispallel for אריה לייב בן טובה לרפואה שלמה. His condition is reported to be “very serious”.
