Tragedy in Jerusalem: Pregnant Woman Collapses & Dies At Entrance To Delivery Room, Baby Is Saved


A 36-year-old woman who was brought by MDA to Hadassah Har Hatzofim in Jerusalem on Tuesday night collapsed and died at the entrance to the delivery room.

Following extensive and prolonged resuscitation techniques, the hospital was forced to declare her death.

A senior midwife saved the baby through an immediate C-section and the baby is now in the NICU.

The medical staff believes that the death was the result of a cardiological issue which caused the woman’s aorta to rupture on the way or at the entrance to the hospital.

“The hospital staff is supporting the family at this difficult time, including a social worker who is at their side, and is providing all possible support in this extremely difficult incident,” the hospital stated. “The incident was reported to the Health Ministry.”

  1. With all the un-imaginable tragedies happening mamash hourly, we have to wake up. Let’s put away our petty bickerings, our political posturing. Let us ALL go back to our Heavenly Father – “Hasivenu Hashem Elecha Venashuva”!
    There is nothing else JUST TESHUVA!

  2. Baruch ha-Shem we live in an era where this is considered newsworthy. In the not too distant past, a sefer on Bris Milah would routinely have a section on what to do if the family was in mourning for the mother at the time of the Bris.
