A 12-year-old boy was successfully resuscitated in the Ein Prat nature reserve after he had drowned.

The boy was pulled from the water unconscious, not breathing and without a pulse. United Hatzalah volunteers who were dispatched to the scene arrived and began to perform CPR on the boy successfully resuscitating him.



United Hatzalah volunteer EMTs Elchanan Kobani and Yishai Sharbaf who performed CPR said: "Together with other medical volunteers from United Hatzalah and IDF medical personnel, we performed CPR on the child and he regained a pulse. He was then evacuated by a military helicopter to Hadassah Mount Scopus hospital in Jerusalem in critical condition."
