Edan and Liron Greyson are begging the tzibur to be mispallel for their son, Daniel Chaim ben Liron, who is hospitalized in serious condition, apparently the result of being shaken in daycare. The parents spoke to the media from Petach Tikvah’s Schneider Medical Center where Daniel is admitted. They praise the efforts of doctors but they are calling for tefilos to assist their son.
The parents explain “We are asking anyone who sees this to please be mispallel for our son Daniel Chaim ben Liron, that HKBH will pull him through this. He remains in an ICU at present”.
Dr. Elchanan Nachum, head of the hospital’s intensive care unit explains the child has suffered cranial bleeding and he is in serious condition. He is sedated and on assisted breathing, adding “There is a suspicion that he was physically injured. He is very serious and is receiving the appropriate care”.
He arrived in the hospital on Monday, 20 Adar-I, and police believe a 53-year-old woman in his daycare center mishandled him. Today, Thursday, 23 Adar-I, the Petach Tikvah Magistrate Court extended the women’s remand by four days.
Police believe the parents placed Daniel in daycare in a private home. At the end of the day, when they came to take him he did not appear well. They brought him to the hospital and his condition was serious. During questioning by police they learned 15 years ago the woman was convicted of using force against a 4-year-old who would not stop crying and began shaking the child. She said “I didn’t mean to hurt him”.
The caretaker has since admitted to shaking the child and she is represented by attorney Shiran Golbari, who told the media her client admitted to her actions under duress.
It is added the 80-year-old mother of the suspect was released from jail after police were satisfied she was not involved. There is a gag order on additional details of the case.
