The boy was struck by the van on March 4 on Route 9 by a driver who was unaware he’d even struck the boy.
To the shock of the dozens of first responders, the 9 year old boy, who was crossing Route 9 with his bike when he was run over, was miraculously extricated from beneath the van with non life-threatening injuries. He suffered two broken femurs, and other injuries.
After being transported to Jersey Shore Medical Center, Mordechai underwent two surgeries. He was released shortly afterwards to a New Brunswick rehabilitation center.
The family member says Mordechai ben Yehudis Rus will be returning home in time for Shabbos, and with time is expected to make a full recovery. [TLS]
