First Responder for Baby Killed in Jerusalem Attack: ‘Her Parents Put Her in My Arms’
Ynet – Avi Steinhartz, a United Hatzalah volunteer, was the first to administer first aid to 3-month-old Haya Zissel Braun, the infant who was killed in the Jerusalem Light Rail attack on Tuesday, and images featuring him carrying her have since become a symbol of the deadly attack.
“I took the baby and began to give her CPR. She had serious head injuries, the vehicle ran over her,” Steinhartz said. “It was a very difficult incident – you have to repress your emotions in order to work properly,” he told Ynet earlier Wednesday.
