(Israel National News) As a Jewish couple stood under the chuppah this week, an Arab Israeli took the microphone to account an amazing story to the assembled guests. He began his story with a shocking statement, ‘I met Shachar [the bride] after she died.’

Ten years prior to the wedding, Shachar was involved in a serious car accident. The Arab paramedic explained that when he arrived at the scene, a doctor, who had arrived there two minutes before him told him. “‘Don’t bother touching the girl. In my opinion, she’s already dead. Let’s treat the driver.’ I told him, ‘Fine. You treat the driver’ and I proceeded to try to revive Shachar.”

The paramedic recounted how Shachar was in cardiac arrest and according to the protocol, the doctor was right and her death should have been declared. “But something from above told me that I need to fight for her.” As the paramedic explained how he performed CPR on Shachar for 40 minutes as she lay in the car, the wedding guests burst into applause.
