When we arrived, we saw the pedestrian lying on the road unconscious and suffering from a multi-system injury. Passers-by said that the elderly man was apparently using a treadmill and was hit by a vehicle while crossing a crosswalk, unfortunately the injury was severe and fatal and an MDA paramedic had to confirm his death on the spot. An extended team of ZAKA North volunteers took care of the dead and collected the finds in the difficult arena."
