A young boy was killed Sunday when he was run over by a bus while riding a bicycle in Holon.

The boy, described by the National Traffic Police as being 12 years old, was riding on Menachem Begin Street in the city when he was struck and run over by the bus.

United Hatzalah paramedic Hillel Hamawi said, “When we arrived at the scene we found a boy who had been hit by a bus and was in critical condition, unconscious, without a pulse and not breathing.”

Hamawi said paramedics repeatedly attempted to revive him, but were forced to pronounce him dead at the scene. They also treated a number of passengers on the bus who suffered from shock after witnessing the collision.

Magen David Adom paramedics who treated the boy said he suffered massive injuries over his entire body.

National Traffic Police have opened an investigation into the accident to determine whether there was any wrongdoing by the bus driver.
