Racheli Dadon was with her 15-year-old daughter Eden on the bus when it became engulfed in flames, while the bus driver did all he could to save the passengers and says no one arouse his suspicion.
Racheli Dadon was desperately looking for her daughter, 15-year-old Eden, after the bombing on bus number 12 in Jerusalem on Monday, “when I found her, I saw that he entire body was burned.”
Police investigation found that an explosive device blew up at the back of the bus. Security forces are investigating the possibility that one of the wounded is a suicide bomber.
From her bed at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem, Racheli recounted in tears the terrifying experience.
“My daughter and I got on the number 12 bus, and my daughter went to the back to find us seats while I paid the bus driver. We hadn’t even sat down when all of a sudden we heard a huge explosion, and glass began to fall on us. Everything was dark and full of smoke,” she recalled.
“I collapsed. Her whole face was black and burned. It was impossible to see her,” Dandon continued. “Paramedics had to carry my daughter out of the bus because she couldn’t move under her own power.”
