A kidney recipient who lives in Beit Shemesh, was rushed to the hospital in a police car Friday night by a police escort who informed him a kidney had become available.
With only an hour to get the man to the hospital, the woman in charge of transplants at the hospital, who had failed to reach the chardei patient on the phone because it was Shabbos, contacted her husband, who is a police officer. He in turn contacted the Beit Shemesh police, who sent a squad car to inform him of the news.
When the Beit Shemesh officers realized that the man had no way of reaching the hospital, they transported him in their car, while working to clear the roads and ensure he would arrive at the hospital on time.
