Daniel Wultz, the 16-year-old high school pupil from Florida who was critically injured in the suicide bomb attack at Tel Aviv's old central bus station last week is in serious but stable condition at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, the hospital spokesman said Wednesday.
Wultz, who was in a coma, now reacts to his surroundings by moving his eyes and batting his eyelashes but he cannot speak because he is connected to a respirator.
Although he will have to undergo a series of operations before he can resume normal function, he is out of danger, his doctors said.
Wultz, a pupil at David Posnack Hebrew Day School in Weston, Florida, came to Israel as a tourist to see relatives for Pessah He and his Israeli-born father were eating lunch when a Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up, killing nine people and wounding dozens. The father suffered moderate wounds and is also out of danger.
