Bnei Brak, Israel - Police Requested when Infant Sustains Burns and Parents Refuse Treatment
Bnei Brak, Israel - An infant sustained second-degree burns, while he was being bathed by his parents, who subsequently refused to allow a Magen David Adom emergency medical team to treat the 14-month old.
The MDA Medics who were called to the scene were surrounded by residents of the religious town, who tried to prevent them from entering the apartment. Once they were inside, the parents refused to allow the infant to be treated, and even refused to accept painkillers for the child.
The MDA team called police for back up, and with the assistance of the officers removed the infant from the apartment.
The child's mother was eventually convinced to accompany her son to Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer. [haaretz]
