“There was a little girl, around eight or nine years old, and they cut off her hand, cut it all, no hand. She was still breathing, she was shaking. And I performed a tourniquet but it was her last breathing [sic],” Atias told CNN in an interview.

“I wasn’t there earlier to save her. She just lost so many blood [sic] for hours. All by herself. No one was near her even. She was so afraid, her eyes, all by herself,” she added.
Atias was part of Israel’s United Hatzalah aid mission to earthquake-stricken areas in Turkey and Morocco after the quake left much damage, injuries and victims, where she provided medical assistance to many Muslims trapped or evacuated from the ruins.
