6-year-old Meir Itzkovitch of Jerusalem was playing with neighbourhood friends and decided to try to climb a building. Seeing what her son was attempting, Meir’s mother Chaya urgently called for him to stop. When she got to Meir, Chaya noticed that her son was holding on to an electric pole and was unconscious, without a pulse, and not breathing due to electric shock.
 
Chaya ran home with her son and dialed 101. Within minutes, Magen David Adom medics and paramedics arrived at the scene and began administering lifesaving medical treatment, which included advanced resuscitation efforts and the use of a defibrillator. After several minutes, Meir’s pulse was restored and he regained consciousness. MDA transported the young boy by an advanced life support unit to Shaare Zedek Hospital in serious but stable condition.
 
Because of the quick response of MDA, Meir was discharged and returned home four days later in satisfactory condition and without any injuries. Soon after, MDA paramedic David Yelnik and senior MDA medic Ronen Yemini, who saved the six-year-old’s life, arrived to visit him.
 
“The last time I saw Meir, he was clinically dead,” said Ronen. “In my twenty years in Magen David Adom, I haven’t been this emotional. This incident definitely gave me the strength to continue in this lifesaving mission.”
 
“If they hadn’t arrived on time, I would have lost Meir,” said Chaya. “Because of their efforts and speedy, professional care, my son came back to me. They are angels who managed to perform a great miracle when they saved my precious son’s life.”
 
Aviva, It’s the support from people like you that keeps Israelis like Meir from the brink of death. Your generosity is crucial to giving MDA medics and paramedics like Ronen and David the tools and training to save Israelis when they need our help the most. Please consider making a generous donation today!

This Mitzvah day consider donating blood either through whole blood or plasma donations. Every blood donation that you provide will save 3 lives here in Australia. Magen David Adom organises blood drives every three months. Here at MDA we believe that it is vital to give back to the community in which we live in and what better way than encouraging the community to give blood through the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. If you unable to attend our quarterly Blood Drives register your name with RED25 Team “MAGEN DAVID ADOM” when you attend your appointment. This will go towards our annually tally of saving lives.
In 2019, we have already saved 348 lives. Thank you to all those who partake in this lifesaving initiative.
