Magen David Adom (MDA) released a tape recording of an emergency call Wednesday by a female witness to the Jerusalem terror attack, in which three-month-old Chaya Zisel Braun hy''d was murdered.

The call for medical aid was made seconds after Hamas terrorist Abdelrahman Shaludi wounded nine by running his car through a crowded light rail station in Ammunition Hill.

"MDA? Urgent, urgent! Ammunition Hill, at the train station - he came up on the sidewalk, at the light rail. He wounded a woman in her head, and wounded another older woman and a baby, please," said the distraught woman.

The MDA receptionist can be heard clarifying that an ambulance was already on its way, and asking how many wounded were at the scene.

"There's a wounded baby and a woman bleeding from her head and another older woman," responded the woman. When asked if the terrorist was still at large, she noted that he had already been arrested.

After the attack Shaludi tried to flee the scene, at which a police officer managed to shoot and apprehend him; he later died of his wounds.

The woman "bleeding from her head" described in the call appears to be a reference to an 18-year-old Ecuadorian citizen who was critically wounded in the attack and has undergone head surgery.

The teenager, who was in Jerusalem studying at a religious girls' seminar, is hospitalized at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital where her parents are to see her Thursday night, after being flown in by the Foreign Ministry.

Another female victim is still hospitalized at the hospital as well, suffering from light wounds, and yet another was released home this morning. Jerusalem's Sha'arei Tzedek Hospital has also been treating a female victim of the attack, whose condition was listed between lightly and moderately wounded.
