Israeli kayaking champion Yasmin Feingold, 20, was badly injured on Monday when she overturned in her kayak in Tel Aviv's Yarkon River. Feingold was kayaking with her feet tied to the vessel and when she overturned, she stayed submerged for an extended period of time, her lungs filling with the Yarkon's filthy and polluted water. A man who saw the incident dived into the water and managed to flip the kayak back over after numerous attempts. Feingold was taken to Tel Aviv's Ichilov Medical Center in very serious condition.
