Former Israeli tennis star and Special Forces soldier Dan Hanegby will be buried in Israel after he was killed while riding a Citi Bike on Monday, neighbors told DNA Info.
Hanegby, who worked as the director of investment banking for Credit Suisse, is survived by his wife and two children. Hanegby, 36, was the first person killed while riding a Citi Bike since the bike-share program started four years ago, according to The New York Times.
Hanegby’s death was ruled Tuesday an accident caused by blunt force trauma to the torso, according to DNA Info. Hanegby was riding the bike in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York when he swerved around a parked van and struck a bus next to him.
Neighbor Dr. Walter “Trip” Darby III told DNAInfo that Hanegby was well-liked and involved with his children.
“My heart aches for his wife and children and family,” he said. “I hope this is a time people come together and send prayers and good energy and root for them.”
