B"H, with thanks to Hashem, Rabbi Nati's son together with Rabbi Nati spent Shabbat at Hadassah Ein Kerem. His son was carefully examined and determined to have no life threatening injuries. All injuries received from the car accident are recoverable with some rest and time (bruising, swelling, internal and external).
He was hit by a hit-and-run driver in his residential Jerusalem neighborhood. The driver hit him, drove another block, jumped out of his car and ran. Was this a case of car theft, or an Arab worker concerned about neighborhood response? Unknown, Rabbi Nati grabbed his son and headed to the hospital as fast as possible, and a call to the police elicited a response of "come on down and file a report", they would NOT come to the scene.
By the time Rabbi Nati returned with his son this morning, the abandoned car was gone. We wish his son a speedy and complete recovery from this trauma.
