Jerusalem - A 31-year-old Israeli man says that the stab wounds he suffered during a terror attack in Rishon Lezion earlier this month may have actually “saved his life” after doctors found and removed an intestinal tumor while treating his injuries.

TIMESOFISRAEL.com (http://bit.ly/1llceSK) reports that kashrut supervisor and father of five, Daniel Cohen, says he was waiting for his bus at central station on November 2 when he was suddenly attacked by a terrorist who seemingly came out of nowhere.

Cohen said his attacker “lunged at me and strangled me” and then produced a knife and began stabbing him as he fell to the ground.

“He pushed me to the floor and stabbed along my left side, in my chest, in my stomach and in my shoulder,” Cohen said.

Cohen was rushed to Assaf Harofeh Hospital by paramedics from Magen David Adom where doctors began emergency surgery.

During his four-hour surgery, doctors discovered and removed a previously undetected tumor from his intestines.

Cohen, who weeks later now says he feeling better, said, “If they hadn’t removed it, it could have gotten much worse. The terror attack saved my life.”
