A one-day-old baby boy was found lifeless in a basket in the nursery of the Hillel Yafeh Hospital in Hadera. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
The child was cared for by a nurse a short time before being found lifeless in the nursery basket. CPR with advanced life support were implemented, albeit without success.
Hospital officials report the delivery of the child was normal but due to his color, the decision was made to provide the special care given to infants. The family of the child is from one of the Hadera region yishuvim. The Ministry of Health has been notified and a probe into the incident is underway.
