Jerusalem – Two young residents of Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighborhood saved the life of a 45- year-old man last week after his heart stopped beating.
Moishe and Pesach Bagaad, aged 14 and 12, respectively, were being driven to school by their father when they noticed a figure lying on the street surrounded by a crowd of passersby. It turned out that the man had suddenly suffered arrythmia, and his heart had stopped due to electrical failure.
The boys told their father – who had not been taught first aid – to stop the car.
They rushed to the scene and called for an ambulance while giving chest compressions.
One of them grabbed his father’s cellphone and gave a concise and accurate account of the incident to the dispatcher.
