A 2-year-old chareidi infant fell from dad’s hands in a Jerusalem hotel as he was picking up the child towards a sink. The child is reported in very serious condition.
The incident occurred close to 20:00 on Wednesday night, the eve of 5 Elul 5772 in the Ramada Hotel.
The father explained to MDA medics that the baby fell and struck his head on the sink as he tried washing him. The infant fell about a meter (39 inches).
The child was transported to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital trauma unit with a head injury and remains on life support in critical condition. Officials at Hadassah are working to stabilize the child’s condition.
