Twins Born to Family of Youngest Carmel Victim

The parents of Elad Rivan, the youngest victim of the Carmel fire disaster two years ago, have had twin babies, Yediot Aharonot reports. The parents have chosen to name the babies Liel and Liad in memory of their deceased older brother.

Elad Rivan died while fighting the massive blaze as a volunteer firefighter. He had celebrated his 16th birthday one month earlier. Next Friday a ceremony will be held to mark two years since his passing.
