Israelis Save Stricken Palestinian Boy at Border
Israeli paramedics and the Israel Defense Forces saved the life of a Palestinian baby who collapsed at the border crossing between the West Bank and Jordan.
The family was taking the 6-month-old baby with heart problems to Jordan on Saturday morning to receive medical attention when he suffered what is believed to be a heart attack, Ynet reported.
Magen David Adom paramedics treated the child until an IDF helicopter evacuated him to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.
A representative from the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Unit, which coordinates between the IDF and the Palestinian Authority, arranged for members of the baby’s family to enter Israel with him, according to Ynet.
