Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may never speak again, according to the Israeli director of the Boston hospital where Tsarnaev is being treated.
Tsarnaev, 19, was wounded in his throat, Kevin Ilan Tabb of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, told Ynet.
Tabb is a board member of Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem, where he studied medicine and completed his residency.
"Unfortunately, I have had a lot of experience with these types of injuries after years of treating people injured in terror attacks in Israel," Tabb, 49, told Ynet. "We have a few Israeli doctors in the emergency room, and the director of the ER is also Israeli. But most of the physicians at the hospital are not Israeli, and they functioned exceptionally well."
As a West Coast guy I may be mistaken, but I always had heard that there were famous universities in the Boston area. Medical schools and the like.
But apparently these schools either produce 3rd rate physicians or the doctors that do graduate all want to get the hell out of Massachusetts.
Either way, at least we can rest easy tonight knowing Tsarnaev is in the care of a team of Israelis.
