Wounded Prison Guard Regains Consciousness

Jailer Hilal Bisan, who was seriously wounded by prisoner Samuel Sheinbein three-and-a-half weeks ago in the Rimonim Prison, regained consciousness, Tuesday morning, at Meir Hospital in nearby Kfar Saba. He was still breathing through a respirator but was able to communicate with his family.

Sheinbein, serving a life sentence for a murder in the United States, shot three other guards. He was ultimately shot to death in a shootout with police.
