Fighters from the Border Police on Sunday provided life-saving medical treatment to a 14-year-old Palestinian Arab who suffered a serious injury to his hand from an industrial shredder in his workplace.

A Palestinian Arab vehicle had arrived at a Border Police base in Beit El, in which the Border Police headquarters in Judea and Samaria are located.

A number of people who came out of the vehicle called for help, among them a 14-year-old who had a serious injury to his hand. The fighters immediately began providing the teen with initial medical treatment. Superintendent Anatoly Plumboim, who is the Border Police physician for Judea and Samaria, and other medical personnel were summoned to the scene, provided the teen with advanced life-saving medical treatment and quickly evacuated him to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

From the information provided by the Palestinian Arabs who were with the 14-year-old, it emerged that he is a resident of the village of Ein Yabrud who was injured from an industrial shredder.

Plumboim said, "I arrived at the base following a report of an injured person who arrived at the scene. We provided advanced medical treatment to a child with a serious hand injury who suffered significant blood loss. After treatment and stabilization, we evacuated him to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital where he was admitted to the trauma room and surgery."
