The streets of Meah Shearim were once again filled with burning dumpsters today, as hundreds of people staged a Hafganah against the possibility of an autopsy being carried out in Yerushalayim.
Apparently, a woman R”L choked while staying in a Yerushalayim hostel last night, and cops felt the need for an autopsy to be performed – to determine the cause of death. Representatives from the ZAKA organization had been frantically trying to persuade the authorities to just do an “external” examination of the Niftar, and not an autopsy.
Eventually, ZAKA’s legal team went to court to plea with a judge to stop the autopsy.
Boruch Hashem the judge listened to their pleas, and as of this time YWN is receiving word that no autopsy will take place.
