JNS.org – An American-Israeli man who was critically wounded in a Jerusalem terrorist attack two weeks ago died Tuesday morning.

Richard Lakin, 76, is the third victim of the attack, in which two Arab terrorists boarded a bus traveling between the capital’s Jewish neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv and neighborhood of Arab Jabel Mukaber, and opened fire on the passengers. Once they were out of ammunition, the terrorists began stabbing passengers.

Haviv Haim, 78, and Alon Govberg, 51, were killed instantly, while Lakin, who sustained a gunshot wound to the head and a stab wound to the chest, was rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem in critical condition. Ten other passengers sustained moderate-to-light injuries in the attack.

Lakin was hospitalized in Hadassah’s Intensive Care Unit and underwent several surgeries in an effort to save his live, but doctors were ultimately unable to stabilize his condition.
