ZAKA Assists in Plane Crash Recovery

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - A team of six workers from Israel's ZAKA volunteer rescue organization arrived in New York Tuesday to aid in recovery efforts for victims of last week's fatal plane crash.

All 50 people on board Continental Flight 3407 perished when the airliner crashed into a private residence in Clarence, New York, a few miles from the flight's destination at the Buffalo airport.

ZAKA workers are often the first to arrive at the scene of a terror attack or accident in Israel.

Most of the organization's volunteers are Orthodox Jews who, in addition to administering emergency first aid, have had extensive experience in identifying victims and gathering body parts for proper burial.

ZAKA has dispatched workers to Thailand, India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia to help forensic teams identify disaster victims.
