A tragedy occurred on Wednesday, 21 Shevat 5774 in a Rishon L’Tzion park as an 11-month-old girl was killed, the result of a fall.
The incident occurred in a public park on Kalisher Street. The mother arrived with her child. The child was placed on the rubberized surface where she played while mom looked on from a bench nearby. At some point it appears the child was pushed as she played with another child. An employee of the nearby Ofakim School realized something was terribly wrong, running over and beginning to resuscitate the small girl.
Unfortunately life-saving efforts on the 11-month-old girl was not successful.
It is reported that there are no safety flaws in the park that may have lead to the tragic occurrence. Police are investigating.
