A member of Israel’s volunteer rescue service has been killed in a car accident along with six members of his family.
Aryeh Bernstein, 43, died after a train collided with a minibus in southern Israel. His wife, pregnant daughter, and four children were also killed when the minibus broke through a railroad barrier near Kiryat Gat.
The only survivors from the crash were the driver and Dudi Gotstein, Mr Bernstein’s son-in-law, who is recovering in hospital. Twenty others were injured.
