Firefighter Danny Hayat who was critically injured in the Carmel fire two weeks ago died at Haifa's Rambam Hospital Saturday from his wounds, raising the number of killed in the fire to 44. He was a commander in the Emek Yizrael firefighting service.

Hayat had sustained burns on over 50 percent of his body and lungs. Doctors had attempted to implant artificial leather skin on his body in the two weeks he was in the hospital. The procedure did not succeed.

Hayat, 35, leaves behind two children and a pregnant wife.
