Another Tragedy in Eretz Yisrael R’L: An Infant Pronounced Dead in Betar Illit Following CPR


2Another 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.

  1. Yes, it is the same child. I know the family. She was BH miraculously saved but her condition was unfortunately not good, she was breathing on her own and opening her eyes but was otherwise more or less not responsive. May the Dayan HaEmes bring nechamah to her parents and siblings, and may this be the last tragedy Klal Yisrael ever sees.

    #2 IF WE EVER want the tzaros in klal yisroel to stop then we need to do our part of the deal with hashem & that is doing Teshuva together as a nation on behalf of all klal yisroels Sins of the past & show Hashem our true remorse (charata) for all we did & beg Hashem to end it.

    What happens today when tragedy strikes R”L? we-the human physical being- wipes it to the side & hardly even think about it. if we do we think about the Niftar. what does the word “injured” mean to us? ok don’t worry he will recover. but you know something injured can also be %90 percent dead for life & you can’t kill him.

    may all tzaros finally come to a end in klal yisroel ASAP
