The condition of former Premier David Ben Gurion took a serious turn for the worse Friday and no substantial change was reported in the latest medical bulletin issued last night. Ben Gurion, 87, was hospitalized a week ago after suffering a stroke. Friday’s medical bulletin said his blood pressure fell, that he was running high temperature and occasionally lapsed into unconsciousness. His physicians described his condition as “serious.” Ben Gurion’s son and two daughters spent Friday and Saturday at his bedside. Premier Golda Meir visited him for a second time. The latest news of his condition caused grave concern in Israel.
