A six-year-old boy is dead after being hit by a bus in Beit Shemesh on Thursday. The boy’s father was also injured in the incident, whose circumstances are still under investigation.

Oshri, an MDA paramedic who arrived at the scene, said the sights he saw were “very difficult.” “A six-year-old boy was trapped under a bus, he was unconscious and was suffering from a severe multi-system trauma,” he said. “As firefighters were pulling him out, we tried to give him medical treatment but his injuries were very serious. We pronounced him dead shortly after.”

On Wednesday, two deadly crashes in northern Israel killed a 35-year-old woman and a three-year-old girl. The woman was killed near moshav Shadmot Dvora when her vehicle collided with a police car.
