Small Child Found in Vehicle During Sharav Heat Wave

B’chasdei Hashem the condition of a four-year-old girl in the Jerusalem corridor was only described as moderate as she was found inside a closed vehicle after two hours on a scorching shabbos day. The child was described in moderate condition as she was transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, diagnosed with heatstroke.

The 4-year-old girl apparently entered the vehicle on her own and it was estimated that she was inside for about two hours before being discovered, diagnosed with heatstroke. Paramedics transported her to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in moderate condition. The incident occurred in the Israeli Arab municipality of Abu Gosh, near Telshe Stone. The temperature outside was in the high 90sF.

  1. If she has a Tzelem Elokim, does it make a difference if she is Jewish or Arab? I personally am very happy that she was saved in time. It is a warning to all parents to lock their car doors at all times to prevent children from entering and falling asleep,Chas V’shalom, in a hot vehicle. A similar story had a tragic ending a few years ago in Israel.

  2. To poster numb. 1, this article states clearly that the incident happened in a Israeli Arab neighborhood, so I would assume it was an Arab child. And to poster numb. 2, how in the world did the child get into the car, well 4 year olds are pretty smart these days, my 3 year old is not far off doing such a act, you gotta be vigilant, eyes in the back of your head when dealing with children. They are always a step ahead, the year is 2012!
