One day after regaining consciousness, seven-year-old Uri Domnovitch, who suffered head trauma in a severe accident last week in southern Israel, managed to remember and write his name on a tablet in the hospital.

Uri's uncle, Yishai Hollander, shared a photo of the tablet and wrote: "My sweet nephew, who was very seriously injured with head trauma in the car accident in the south a week ago, wrote his name today on a tablet. Small steps out of the abyss."

Yesterday, Soroka Medical Center announced that the conditions of Uri and his father, Iliya, who were injured in the accident on Route 40 in the Negev on Independence Day, improved.

Uri currently breathes on his own, and his condition is classified as moderate, and Iliya regained consciousness and is also breathing on his own. The father will have to undergo additional surgeries.

Uri's mother, Ayala, who was also moderately injured in the accident, visited her son in his hospital room after he woke up. The hospital stated that its staff is "happy about the improvement in their condition and continues to provide them with dedicated and optimal care."

The family's youngest child, one-year-old Ma'ayan, was killed in the accident. Two of their other children were moderately injured in the accident and have been released from the hospital.

The driver of the vehicle which collided with the family's car has been arrested and faces charges of negligent homicide and driving under the influence.
