He was airlifted to Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer after IDF medics managed to stabilize his condition. The IDF was investigating the circumstances of the incident, which occurred during a physical evaluation that included a 2,000 meter run, push-ups and chin-ups, in preparation for officers' course.
