Entitled: A Bomb at the Bus Stop
Yossi wanted to ride the bus and stood at the bus stop.
Suddenly, he saw a black bag under the bench.
"Whose bag is this?,” Yossi asked to the people at the bus stop.
No one answered.
"Does anyone recognize this bag?,” Yossi asked again.
Again, no one answered.
Yossi ran to the public phone and called the police.
Immediately, a mobile police unit arrived with officers and a bomb disposal expert.
The bomp sapper checked the bag and found a ticking bomb inside of it.
The officers moved everyone away and the bomb sapper detonated the bomb.
Yossi was invited to the police station and the station's captain said to him:
"You did something important; you saved all of the people in the area.”
The captain gave Yossi a certificate of appreciation and a badge of the Israeli Police.
