Terror Attack Survivor Gives Birth to Baby Boy at Hadassah's Hospital

Tuesday, Aug 12 2014

Adi Hudja Peretz, who almost lost her life in a terror attack 13 years ago, has delivered a healthy baby boy at Hadassah's Hospital in Ein Kerem.

Adi had been brought to Hadassah, close to death, following the January 2001 terrorist attack on Ben Yehudah Street. Prof. Avi Rivkind, head of Hadassah’s Trauma Unit, and Prof. Rami Mosheyoff, head of Orthopedic Trauma, saved her life; Prof. Iri Liebergall, head of Orthopedics, saved her leg. Adi endured numerous operations, as well as countless exhausting and painful rehabilitation regimens, but at Hadassah’s Centennial Convention in Jerusalem in 2012, she walked gracefully across the stage, wearing high-heeled shoes.
