"Oh God, oh God help us!" a soldier's voice can be heard screaming through the phone line to a Magen David Adom (MDA) operator. The scream could be heard after a loud crash in the background, when Kavim bus No. 304 overturned on Route 443 on Sunday morning, killing two and wounding dozens of others.
Channel 12 News released the dramatic phone call on Monday. The soldier called MDA to report a light accident on the highway, but while he was talking to the operator, he witnessed the bus overturning.
As the disaster happened, he continuously yelled out "oh God" before telling the operator to urgently send ambulances because a bus overturned, after which the operator immediately sent out the emergency team.
Two women, Rachel Gutman and Ruchama Rosen, were killed in the disaster. They were laid to rest on Sunday.
While dozens of others were wounded and had to be hospitalized, most of the lightly injured passengers were released by Monday morning, Shaare Zedek Medical Center and Yitzhak Shamir Medical Center reported.
