One clip which shows such heroism is one from YNetNews. The video [WATCH HERE] shows young police officers pulling small children over the side of the fence to their safety. Officers carry the children and speak reassuring words, as just over the side of the wall next to them, people are brutally crushed to death. In one particularly moving moment, a 2-year-old sobs, calling for his Abba, as they bring him to safety. “Abba is coming,” the office says, holding him close. “Abba is coming.”
Unfortunately it was not yet clear whether the boy’s Abba truly was coming, or if he was one of the 45 who lost their lives under the weight of the crowd.
Right now, 42 children are sitting shiva for fathers lost on Thursday night, some of them babies. A fund has been opened to help the families of the victims provide safe futures for these children, as many of them relied on their now deceased parents for support.
