By Yeshiva World News

Horror unfolded on Wednesday morning when word spread of an unthinkable tragedy that claimed the lives of three Yeshiva Bochurim.

Sources tell YWN that the three Bochurim, from Monsey, Williamsburg, and London, were part of a group of Bochurim from Mir Yerushalayim who were in Ukraine visiting Mekomos Hakedoshim. The Bochurim took a sightseeing plane ride in Western Ukraine on Wednesday afternoon, and for reasons still unknown, a horrific accident occurred when the plane went down in Prykarpattia, and crashed into a private house near the village of Sheparivtsi.

Sheparivtsi is near the border with Romania, Moldova, Slovakia, and Hungary.

The three Bochrim tragically killed in the plane crash were Amrom Fromowitz Z”L of Monsey, Hershy Weiss Z”L of London, and Lazer Brill Z”L of Williamsburg.

Additionally, local authorities are being extremely cooperative with Misaskim and are working on expediting their release from the crash scene to be able to be brought to Kevurah as fast as possible.
