Israeli singer Avihai Hollender visited the hospital room of his nephew Uri Domnovitch, the seven-year-old boy who was critically in a vehicle collision on Independence Day last week, and played music for him.

Uri remains under sedation and on a ventilator at Soroka Medical Center in Be'er Sheva with a head injury. His baby brother, one-year-old Ma'ayan, was killed in the accident.

The father, Ilya Domnovitch, remains in serious condition under sedation and on a ventilator. His brother Yitzhak announced that Ilya is showing signs of beginning to regain consciousness.

Two other children from the family, as well as the mother, Ayala, were moderately injured in the accident. Ayala remains hospitalized and is expected to undergo a lengthy rehabilitation process.

There has been a slight improvement in Uri's condition, but he does not yet show any signs of beginning to regain consciousness.

Yitzhak said that "the family would like to thank the medical staff at the Soroka Hospital who work night and day for us for the treatment of Ilya, Ayala, and Uri."

"We thank the people of Israel for the support and embrace we have received, and ask that they continue praying for the recovery of Ilya Yinon Shraga Ben Baya Yardena, Ayala Molly Bat Nechama, and Uri Amidan Ben Ayala Molly. We hope to be able to announce good news soon."
