It's very sad, but a man who survived the attack last year in Har Nof
yet wound up in a coma has now died from injuries he'd sustained earlier
Almost one year after he was severely injured in the attack in the Har Nof Synagogue in Jerusalem, Chaim Yechiel Rothman succumbed to his wounds and passed away.
Rothman, 54 years old, had been in a coma since the attack. He was the sixth victim, including four who were killed in the attack and a Druze police officer who died one day later. He made aliyah to Israel from Toronto, Canada in 1985. Four other people besides Rothman were injured in the attack, and two policemen were injured in the ensuing battle with the terrorists.
It's terrible that he couldn't even wake from his coma, and now lost his life completely.
