Another tragedy in the chareidi tzibur in Eretz Yisrael, this time in Betar Illit. A nine-month-old girl went into cardiac arrest in her home and pronounced dead after CPR and advanced life support efforts failed. Resuscitation efforts continued for an hour.
Ichud Hatzalah responders in the chareidi city report they were summoned to the apartment on Chai Yitzchak Street and found the infant in cardiac arrest. It is reported they believe the child choked while eating and lost consciousness.
Reportedly, this is the same child who was saved miraculously after swallowing a deflated balloon two months ago.
MDA paramedics arrived on the scene and initiated advanced life support as CPR continued. Unfortunately, those efforts failed as well and the child was pronounced dead.
