Last night 8-year-old Asher Menachem Plai, who was murdered in the stampede attack in Jerusalem, was laid to rest and buried next to his 6-year-old brother Yaakov, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Father Avraham is still hospitalized this morning (Sunday) at Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem.
From the details of the disaster, it becomes clear that the father Avraham took four children with him to the bus stop in Ramot neighborhood in the capital on the way to a cousin's family celebration in Bnei Brak.
Three children were with him at the station, two of them - Jacob and Asher - were injured and another child was slightly injured.
Now it turns out that the fourth child was saved after he was delayed in his father's car parked near the bus stop.
The grandfather, Amos Brunner said this morning: "The father does not yet know the extent of the disaster. He needs great medicine."
Asher and Yaakov said: "They were spiritual children, pure and so eager, but apparently their luck ran out. This is a family earthquake, but also for the residents of the country. We need to take these things into consideration, get stronger and be more serious, each one in what he can for the uplifting of their souls "

Ya'akov and Asher were murdered last Friday in a stampede attack in the Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Also murdered in the attack was 20-year-old Alter Shlomo Lederman, a yeshiva student who got married only a few months ago and was on his way with his wife to spend Shabbat with his parents in Elad.
The event took place a little more than three hours before the start of Shabbat.
While the murdered and wounded were waiting for the bus, a terrorist accelerated in his car towards a bus station in the Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem.
The terrorist, 31-year-old Hussein Karaka from Issawiya, was shot dead by an off-duty police officer.
Only about two weeks ago, there was another attack in the city, in the Neve Ya'akov neighborhood, in which seven people were murdered on Saturday evening by a 21-year-old terrorist from East Jerusalem.
The next day, another attack occurred at the Tower of David, during which a father and his son, the officer, were seriously injured by gunfire.
