Sarah Sperling – the 20-year-old who was to be married in two weeks before suffering serious and horrific injuries in the lethal Egged bus crash on Highway 1 last Sunday regained consciousness over the weekend. A statement made by Assaf Harofeh hospital said that she is currently breathing on her own power.
Her condition is considered to be moderate and stable.
Sarah and her younger sister Bracha were on the route 402 bus heading from Jerusalem to Bnei Brak. Sarah was critically wounded and her sister Bracha was lightly wounded in the crash. The father of the girls told reporters that the sisters were on their way to Bnei Brak in order to see to some of the wedding arrangements. The wedding was set to take place three and a half weeks after the accident occurred.
During the course of the week, Sarah Netanyahu together with Health Minister Ya'akov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) visited the bride-to-be in the hospital.
