The traffic accident victims who died near Tiberias early Tuesday morning have been named as Rafi and Yehudi, the parents, aged 42, their daughter, Avia, 17, twin sons Shimon and Elishav, 16, Shira, 11, Tair, 9, and Noa, 5.

Rahel, 7, survived the accident after she was thrown out of the mini-van window by the force of the crash, thus escaping the fire. She was not wearing a seatbelt.

Rahel, the only survivor, asked doctors at the Rambam Medical Center if "everyone died?" She cried bitterly after being answered in the affirmative.
