Lag B’Omer Tragedy: A Young Man Collapses & Dies

candle75.gifA chareidi man described about 40, who was at Kever Rashbi on Thursday night, was heading home to Betar with a number of friends when at about 09:30 Friday morning he suffered a cardiac arrest.

He told the passengers in the vehicle that he did not feel well, pulling over at Zeitim Junction near Har Meron, and then he slumped over. CPR was performed for about 30 minutes with advanced life support, pharmacological intervention and defibrillation, but to no avail. A MDA physician pronounced him dead in a paramedic advanced life support ambulance en route to hospital.

While Hatzolah and MDA personnel worked on him, his stunned colleagues stood at the side, in tears, reciting Tehillim. They told medics later that earlier in the morning he was complaining of chest pain.

    As one who has suffered and B”H survived two heart attacks, I cannot emphasize strongly enough how important it is to see medical help if you have chest pain. Every doctor would prefer to treat a patient with chest pains that are “nothing” and not heart related, than have to give CPR when it is too late.

  2. As one who suffered and B H survived a triple by pass- at age 48
    1. Stop Smoking- NEVER START
    2. Exercise daily- take out 45 a day and do a brisk walk- you will feel great
    3. Watch what you eat- stop eating garbage
    4. Lose weight- if you are 6 feet you should not weigh more that 165- get down to the weight you were in high school.
    5. avoid red meat- once or twice a week max.
    6. take the skin off the chicken
    7. avoid white flour, use whole wheat for breads and pasta
    8. eat lots of salads
    9. Educate yourself, your doctors are not forceful enough.
    10. check your Cholestorol HDL etc. Yearly, and get your numbers as good as possible, you must do better than the numbers they allow.
    11. avoid stress

    12. AND now for the good part. Drink LOTS of dry red wine, grow accustomed to the taste, spend the money on the better, non-mevushal wines, its worth it-

  3. And the most important thing, ask Hashem you and your family should always stay healthy and alive.

  4. I’m a little surprised and skeptical. I live in Beitar and have not seen any notices about a levaya, nor have any of my friends heard about this tragic story. Does anyone know the name and can anyone confirm this story.
