'Father in Heaven, Have Mercy!'

Relatives of the eight members of the Attias family, who were killed in a horrific car accident in Tiberias after their brakes failed in May of 2012, released on Tuesday a recording of the family’s conversation with police officers, moments before the car crashed.

Rafael and Yehudit Attias were killed in the accident along with six of their children: Avia, 17, twins Eliyashiv and Neria Shimon, 16, Shira, 11, Tair, 8 and Noa, 4. Only the couple’s daughter Rachel, who was seven years old at the time, survived the crash. She currently lives in Tzfat with her aunt.
