Israeli Woman Seriously Injured as "Holocaust Siren" Sounds (Thursday, April 19th, 2012)
At 10:00am Thursday morning, a two-minute siren was heard nationwide marking the beginning of "Holocaust" Remembrance Day events. As the siren sounded, a 64-year-old woman on King Shaul Street in Beersheva was struck by a vehicle as she stood at attention during the siren. She was struck by a passing vehicle and seriously injured as she was thrown and pinned between two cars, apparently sustaining a serious head injury. She was transported to the trauma unit of Soroka Hospital in the city. Elsewhere, another woman sustained moderate injuries as she too was struck during the siren on Route 44. She was transported to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv.
