Williamsburg, NY - Hatzolah Emergency crews in Williamsburg were called to a multi-family home early this afternoon, after a small child fell from a fifth-floor porch.
5 year-old Shimon Yisroel Meisels fell from the porch at 200 Wallabout Street and Lee Avenue, shortly before 08:00 P.M.
The child was in critical condition when taken by ambulance to Brooklyn hospital, but later succumbed to the injuries and passed away.
Shimon Yisroel is the grandson of Rabbi Tzvi Hersh Meisels, Shopron Rav of Williamsburg.
Ironically Shimon Yisroel lost his mother two years ago from a terminal illness.
