As rescue workers explain shortly after the rescue, the little boy probably owes his life to his parents, who had taken him protectively in their arms at the moment of the crash. Little Eitan fought for his life for days, while his parents, great-grandparents and little brother could only be rescued dead.
As Italian media reported in the days after the accident, doctors are said to have advised not to tell the boy the truth about the death of his parents at first. The trauma that such a message could trigger in the still seriously injured child is too great. In the meantime, however, little Eitan should know about his fate and that of his closest family, at least that’s what the Italian newspaper reports La Repubblica. According to this, the boy’s aunt, who rushed to her nephew’s bedside immediately after the tragic accident, and a psychologist talked to the little boy about the tragic accident of Pentecost Sunday.
