A 3-year-old child from East Jerusalem died on Wednesday afternoon, after having his tonsils removed.
The child underwent the surgery a few days ago and began hemorrhaging at home. His parents transported him to a Terem emergency clinic, and they began CPR and advanced resuscitation as the child went into cardiac arrest.
He was transported to Shaare Zedek Hospital by MDA, as resuscitation continued, but they were unable to save him.
It is reported his bleeding was the result of complications from the surgery to remove his tonsils. The surgery was performed at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.
