Praying for Eytan   1 comment

Eytan Amiaz, chairman of the Israel Sport Orienteering Association, suffered a massive heart attack yesterday during the national event at Nachshonim. He had retired from the race feeling unwell, but seemed to be OK and then suddenly collapsed. Luckily, because he was at the assembly area, there were a number of doctors nearby and also a defibrillator, and an ambulance arrived quite quickly.

Eytan is now in intensive care in hospital and we are all praying for him to recover, but no-one knows yet how much damage his heart and brain have suffered. He is 58 years old and one of the leaders in the H55 category, so quite fit, and obviously passed all his annual checkups as required.
