Jerusalem First Responder Relives Terror Truck Mayhem

The Algemeiner reports: The scene of Sunday’s deadly truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem in which four IDF soldiers were killed by an Arab terrorist was one of “complete mayhem,” a first responder told The Algemeiner hours after the incident.

“There was a lot of shouting and screaming,” United Hatzalah EMT Dovi Meyer — who arrived at the Armon Hanatziv promenade just minutes following the attack — recounted. “There were over 100 soldiers there. We did triage to see who was really injured and who was going through traumatic shock and stress. We treated more than a dozen people who were transported to a hospital and we worked tirelessly on the four individuals [who died] — three who were pinned underneath the vehicle and one who was hit head-on. Advanced life support was performed, but unfortunately they had to be declared dead at the scene.”

“I saw four dead soldiers in their 20s,” Meyer continued. “I’m a similar age, 21, and to see life taken before your eyes so quickly and mercilessly, there are no words really. I’m going to have a difficult time sleeping tonight, but tomorrow we’ll get up and keep doing what we’re doing, because if not us, then who?”
