Patients and visitors to the Arison hospitalization tower of Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center were "treated" to a surprise display of water and foam on Wednesday when the fire-extinguishing pipe system checked by an outside contractor was mistakenly activated.
The hospital quickly identified the cause of the problem, shut down the tower's elevators and removed the bubbles and water.
No harm was caused to patients and visitors on the affected fourth, fifth and sixth floors, and they were able to use the staff elevators or the stairs.
