Oz Davidian, a 52-year-old lawyer from Maslul, a northwestern Negev moshav near Ofakim, made at least 15 back-to-back journeys into the chaos of the Supernova festival massacre, saving over 120 lives while putting his own at risk.

On the morning of October 7, after he and his family woke up to the sounds of alarms and rockets fired from Gaza, signaling the start of Hamas’ vicious attack, Davidian left his loved ones in the safe room of their home and left its safety to try and offer help.

He had gotten a WhatsApp message from his brother-in-law at a family property close to Kibbutz Re’im, near the location of the music festival, telling him “There are many wounded kids here, who can help?”

Arriving at the scene and realizing the magnitude of the horror, with no army in sight despite multiple civilian and police casualties, Davidian began searching for survivors hiding in bushes and the surrounding lightly wooded area.

Using his pickup truck, he repeatedly transported dozens of people back to safety and medical treatment. He told Israel Today that “the scene looked like hell… I filled up the vehicle like a bus in India, on the hood, in the back, on the trunk, holding onto the step at the back, anything just to get them out.”

During the entire time, Davidian and his truck were subjected to shooting attempts by terrorists, He just kept on going, using at times a gun taken from a dead Hamas terrorist.

This unbelievable story of courage was captured on his dashboard cam, offering his point of view of the day’s events as they unfolded in real time.

“I kept thinking about the parents of these young people who must be going crazy, and I was almost out of battery, but I still let them each make a 10-second call home, just to let their parents know they’re alive,, he told Israel Today.

Over the following days, Davidian re-encountered several of the young men and women who owe him their lives, out of many party-goers and others he found along his way.

Davidian said that though he had served in the army and witnessed several terror attacks in the past, nothing prepared him for the October 7 attack and the sights of the Supernova massacre: “I never saw anything like that in my entire life. I speak so the world will know and understand the shock. This is also a part of our fight.”
