Stabbed Cabbie Conscious Again (INN) ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS) By Gil Ronen 04/26/12)Source: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/155173#.T5oef7OO2So INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS INN} ISRAEL NATIONAL NEWS Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Aharon Hujayov, a cab driver who was stabbed Tuesday by a terrorist, has regained consciousness at Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba.

Hujayov was stabbed by a terrorist whom he had taken to Kfar Saba. He spoke with Channel 10 TV news and said: "I thank the Creator for performing a real miracle and that I remained alive."

Hujayov said there had not been anything suspicious about the man who asked him to drive him. "He told me: ´Kfar Saba´ and I drove him to Kfar Saba. I asked, where in Kfar Saba do you want to go," and he said, ´We will get there and I will show you.´ He had wanted to sit in the back and I told him, ´come, sit in the front.´"

Hujayov´s condition is still defined as serious. He remembers the actual stabbing vaguely. "He did everything at the same time. I do not remember if he said anything. It all happened within seconds." However, he did manage to see the knife that the attacker used. "He took out a knife and cut me several times in the stomach, in the hand. It was not just any knife. It was a hunting knife."

After the stabbing, Hujayov contacted the taxi company´s dispatcher and asked for help. The attacker escaped but was arrested later in the day, on a nearby street. He was taken to be interrogated by Shin Bet.

He had a message for fellow cabbies. "Because we sometimes lack work, we sometimes tell ourselves – ´let´s make another 100 or 120 shekels for brining some bread home, and look what happens to us in the end." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/26/12)
