A 24-year-old ultra-Orthodox student drowned on the separate beach in Kinneret in Tiberias. MDA medics and paramedics provided medical treatment at the scene and performed resuscitation operations, at the end of which his death was determined.
A paramedic on the MDA-Israel Lugassi sea-bullying boat said: “When we reached the shore, our lifeguard friend used the man from the water and performed basic resuscitation operations on him. We continued the medical treatment and performed advanced and prolonged resuscitation operations that included resuscitation, massages and medication, and unfortunately in the end we had to determine his death. “
Moshe Maman, a ZAKA North volunteer who treated the scene, said: “When I arrived at the beach, I saw many rescue forces performing resuscitation operations on a 24-year-old man who was pulled from the water by the rescuers after drowning. Dozens of civilians stood next to them and recited psalms. An MDA paramedic was forced to confirm his death on the spot. ZAKA North volunteers treated the dead in the difficult arena, “the circumstances of the incident are being investigated by the police.”
Yehuda Meshi Zahav, chairman of ZAKA, called on bathers to exercise caution: “It is very important to adhere to the rules of safety at sea. I appeal to bathers to adhere to the rules and return home safely.”
The Israel Police said, “A report was recently received at the 100 police hotline that a 24-year-old man drowned on the separate beach in the Sea of Galilee while staying with a family member. “Israel was called to the scene and began collecting evidence and collecting findings to investigate the circumstances of the case.”
