Story of a Hero Doctor
How ironic is it that an Israeli doctor
on a vacation in London, ends up helping bombing victims?[Benny] Meilik did not waste time, and his speedy response saved lives.
"I have heard enough explosions to know what they sound like, and when I heard the boom I sprung into action," he said later.
Leaving his wife and children at the hotel, which was evacuated moments later by the police, he dashed outside to find out what had happened.
"People were pointing at the tube station and I so I went in." he said. "There was carnage, smoke everywhere, and suddenly paramedics rushed in after me."
It was the start of a tough morning for the doctor, who has treated over 100 victims of the conflict in Israel and is used to seeing the sorts of injuries that greeted him on the platforms of Russell Square.
