Two Israeli doctors and one economist were killed in Saturday’s Crossair plane crash. The 97-seat plane crashed in a Swiss forest while attempting to land at Zurich Airport late Saturday night. The two doctors were identified as Dr. Ya’acov Matzner, dean of faculty at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical Center, and Dr. Amiram Eldor, head of the hematology department at Ichilov Hospital. The third man was Avishai Berkman, a senior Tel Aviv municipal official.
