A 1-year-old Monsey boy R”L drowned to death in a toilet on the second night of Rosh Hashanah, while spending Yom Tov in Boro Park.
Mendi Altman, who was just 14-months-old, was found face down in the toilet by his 13-year-old cousin at about 11 p.m. inside his aunt’s home on 11th Avenue in Borough Park, cops said.
The tragic tot’s family was visiting his mother’s sister from Monsey and her family for Yom Tov. The father was in Uman for Yom Tov.
Police said that there were no signs of trauma and absolutely no criminality is suspected in his tragic death,
The children were put to sleep and at one point the adults checked and the children were fine.
Misaskim worked tirelessly together with the Medical Examiner, as well as the NYPD’s Crime Scene Unit, to ensure proper Kavod was given to the Niftar over Yom Tov.
Mendi was one of seven siblings.
The Levaya is scheduled for sometime Wednesday.
