Thursday, 24 May 2001 is a date that will be long remembered by many Israelis. As some 700 invited guests were celebrating a wedding in the Versailles Hall in Jerusalem, the floor suddenly collapsed, leaving hundreds injured in the worst civilian disaster that has occurred in the country’s 53 year history. The cave-in was vividly recorded by the video photographer hired to film the wedding. Army extrication teams removed the bodies of 23 people over a period of two days. Work at the site, conducted despite the possibility of further structural collapse, stopped only after all persons reported missing were located.
