A United Hatzalah volunteer went on yet another routine call in Netivot to treat a seriously injured traffic accident victim on Thursday and found that it was his own eight-year-old daughter.

The medic left his place of work when he got the call and raced to the scene of the accident, where -- to his shock -- he realized that his daughter had been injured and was lying on the pavement. As other UH volunteers quickly arrived, they treated and evacuated her, as the father went into shock and was momentarily unable to function.

UH founder and director Eli Beer asked the public to pray for the girl, Hindel bat Rivka Haya.
