Slight improvement in Haifa police chief's condition

Doctors at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa manage to stabilize condition of Ahuva Tomer who was critically injured Thursday. Opposition chairwoman Livni visits wounded in hospital

There has been a slight improvement in the condition of Haifa Police District Chief Superintendent Ahuva Tomer who was critically injured in the Carmel fire Thursday.


Dr. Yaron Bar Lavi, director of the Intensive Care Unit at the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa where Tomer is hospitalized stressed that despite the development "Tomer's condition is still considered critical and her life is in danger."


Dr. Bar-Lavi said that Tomer arrived at the hospital with sever burns. "We are in the process of stabilizing her condition which has proved successful in recent hours. There has been an improvement in her blood pressure and clotting ability and we are monitoring her brain activity.


"These are encouraging signs but it should be stressed that until we can cut her off the machines we are in for many hours of struggle. Only then will we be able to treat the burns covering her body."


Two additional fire victims were admitted in the Rambam Medical Center: Prison Service cadet Jalal Bisan and firefighter Dani Hayat, who are both in serious condition. Bisan, a 29-year-old from the village of Gett has 60% burns. 

He and his pregnant wife are parents to two children,


Earlier on Friday, Opposition Chairwoman Tzipi Livni arrived at the hospital and spoke to Bisan's family members. "We're keeping our fingers crossed for you," Livni told Bisan's wife Vivian. "Your husband and the rest of the people who were there are hero. These are the moments that the entire people of Israel pray together with you. On this day we need to fight together, later there will be ample time to draw conclusions."
