Hezi Roth, a volunteer for United Hatzalah and a business owner on Malchei Yisrael St. in Jerusalem, was the first to reach the scene of the stabbing and car attack which killed Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky on Tuesday. 

Eight people were injured in the attack, which occurred ten minutes after the shooting in Armon Hanatziv, where two Jews were murdered.

"They came to my store and told me to come quickly," Roth recounted, in a special interview with Arutz Sheva. "I took my ambu-bike and flew to the scene."

"It was a very difficult, I saw people laying on the road and the sidewalk - Jews who are visibly Orthodox," he said. "The bus stop was shattered and there was a small car which was totaled." 

Roth said it was not possible to save Krishevsky.

"I went to one of those critically injured with severe head injury, we tried to give him assistance, but in fact we had to confirm his death," he said. "We went to help the wounded who had bleeding all over their bodies; some were conscious - I hope they will survive." 

"[Seeing] visibly Orthodox people lying on the road, with bloody tzitzit, these difficult scenes are reminiscent of the (slaughter) in Har Nof," he added, referring to the massacre last November. 

"I've been here running my business for 22 years and I never saw anything like this, the streets are empty," he reflected. "Yesterday we had ten false alarms, people panic. Just now we reached a Beit Yaakov [girls' school] nearby and many students are in shock, we've been treating them."
