Jericho Bus Victim Dies in London

Download PDF for this date

David Delarosa, 19, a soldier who tried vainly to rescue a woman and children from a firebombed bus near Jericho on Oct. 30, died in London Thursday.

He had sustained serious injuries to his heart and lungs from smoke inhalation. Only a heart and lung transplant might have saved his life, and he was flown to London for that purpose a week ago. He succumbed waiting for a donor.

Delarosa was the fourth victim of what was easily the worst terrorist act this year.
