Paramedics Help Dozens at Vizhnitzer Rebbe's Funeral

The hareidi rescue organizations, Ichud Hatzalah and Hatzalah Gush Dan, reported on Wednesday that they treated dozens of people who required medical treatment during the funeral of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe, Rabbi Moshe Yehoshua Hager.

Most of those who needed medical assistance fainted due to the over crowdedness of the funeral procession. The paramedics reported that after they provided those who fainted with treatment, they refused to go to the hospital and insisted on remaining at the funeral.
