Groom seriously injured while dancing at his wedding

A wedding in the city of Modiin in central Israel took a tragic turn on Sunday, after the newlywed groom was seriously injured while celebrating with his friends.

According to the Ynet news site, the 34-year-old man was picked up by his friends while dancing and fell from a height of about three meters. According to another report, the man was dancing on a table and slipped.

He was evacuated to the Sheba Medical Center in Ramat Gan in serious condition after suffering a significant head injury, Magen David Adom paramedic Itay Peretz said.

“When we got there we saw an unconscious man with a head injury. We were told that he had fallen from a height of roughly three meters,” Peretz said.

“We treated him on the scene and evacuated him to the hospital in serious but stable condition,” he added.

The Climate Crisis and Responsible Journalism

As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.

I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.

I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.

Your support, through membership in The Times of Israel Community, enables us to continue our important work. Would you join our Community today?

Thank you,
