A 15-year-old boy and a 36-year-old man who suffered serious injuries at the late-night funeral of 101-year-old Rabbi Shmuel Wosner in Bnei Brak improved somewhat on Tuesday, but an 18 year old who was also severely injured remained in critical condition.

A young man -- married and the father of a three-year-old who had been very close to the rabbi -- was trampled to death by the throng that attended the funeral. All remain in the intensive care unit of Sheba Medical Center.
