‘Mom it hurts, it burns’

Sixteen-year-old Eden Dadon, who was moderately to severely wounded in Monday's bus attack, is currently on a respirator at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital.

Rachel, her mother who was also in the bus and lightly wounded, saw her daughter this afternoon for the first time since the explosion.

"I left left Eden's room and was pained by what I saw," she told reporters. "I had a healthy daughter and now it's difficult to look. It's hard for me with this whole situation. It's a very difficult scene. No mother wants to go through something like this.

"I saw two seats behind the driver and Eden sat in the back, where she likes to sit," she recalled. "I wanted to call my mother and suddenly the whole bus blew up. There was soot and something went up in flames. At the time I was confused, but in a second I remembered my daughter and looked for her.

"Suddenly I saw her with burns and her whole skin peeling. She told me, 'Mom it hurt, it burns.' Eden sat on the floor and couldn't move. She asked me to bring her water but I didn't have any."

It's hard for Rachel to forget what she saw. "Things became dark, everything was darkness and blood. I couldn't find myself."

Afterwards, she sent a message to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to take action. "I call on Netanyahu to wake up. Whenever I saw attacks and wounded victims, I prayed for their recovery. But now I am experiencing it. I can't stand it. It's not just me, it's thousands of people who were left disabled and wounded. It's scary to just go outside. I didn't expect to go out to treat my daughter and come back wounded."
