ZAKA volunteer Momy Ben-Haim was dispatched to the scene of the terrorist attack with his colleagues, where to his horror he discovered his wife's body among the dead.

"We saw a crying volunteer, and at first we did not understand what was happening - he has seen many disasters before," Zaka volunteer Isaac Bernstein told The Jerusalem Post.

"Then he started shouting, 'That's my wife! That's my wife!' We took him away from the scene immediately," Bernstein added.

Ben-Haim was taken to his home in Bet Hagai by his colleagues.
