An 88-year-old man was evacuated by a rescue helicopter to Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva in moderate condition after being rescued from a salt water pool at the Dead Sea hotels.

According to Magen David Adom (MDA), at 08:18, a report was received at MDA's 101 call center in the Negev region regarding a man who was rescued from a salt water pool at the Dead Sea hotels. MDA paramedics provided medical treatment and evacuated the 88-year-old man, who was in moderate condition with full consciousness and shortness of breath, by MDA-Rescue helicopter to Soroka Medical Center.

Last week, a serious drowning incident occurred when a 4-year-old girl drowned in a public pool on Uri Tzvi Greenberg Street in Tel Aviv. Rescue teams provided her with medical treatment and performed resuscitation procedures. After her pulse was restored, she was transferred to Ichilov Hospital in serious condition and is currently on a ventilator.

MDA medic: "The girl was unconscious"

Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedic Marlen Brintseski and emergency medical technician Zvika Lerrer from MDA's motorcycle unit recounted, "The child who drowned was unconscious, without a pulse, and not breathing. Immediately, we started providing medical treatment and performing prolonged CPR. Once her pulse returned, we quickly transferred her to the intensive care ambulance, and she was rushed to the hospital in critical condition while on a ventilator."

Rom Ella, a United Hatzalah paramedic, stated, "Eyewitnesses reported that she drowned in the Jacuzzi without a pulse and breath. With the assistance of other responders, we provided her with initial care while performing CPR. After her pulse returned miraculously, she was transferred to Ichilov Hospital in serious condition."

Earlier today, it was reported that a 21-year-old woman fell from a horse while riding near Odem in the north. She was transported to Ziv Hospital in moderate condition, suffering from head and back injuries.
