The family of Or Ascher, who was murdered in an attack on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv, decided to donate his organs.
This donation saved the life of a one-year-old and three-month-old baby tonight (Tuesday).
During the night, the complex operation was performed at the Schneider Pediatric Center, in which part of Or Ascher's liver was transplanted into the body of a one-year-old and three-month-old baby, who suffered from severe liver failure.
The operation, which saved the baby's life, was performed by Dr. Michael Gurvitz, director of the liver transplant unit at the Schneider Center.
