Yaron was Injured in the infamous Hilton Tower and Moon Island terror attack in the Sinai Peninsula in 2004. Shrapnel from a packed explosive in a car bomb sliced into his brain. The other Israeli tourists on the beach tried to save him since no Egyptian ambulances were coming to rescue them. They tried to drive him into Israel but the Egyptian border guards would not let them through going so far as to put tacks on the road to stop their cars. When he was finally evacuated and made it to an Israeli hospital, he was in a coma for four days.
