Israel - Israeli Toddler Left In Car Buried This Afternoon In Jerusalem
Jerusalem - For the second time in less than two weeks, an Israeli girl has died after accidentally being left in a car in the brutal summer heat.
The terrible tragedy took place this morning when Chana Rina Feldman, who was approximately 18 months old, was unintentionally left alone in her father’s locked car near her home in Beitar Ilit. When the girl’s father, a Bresolver chosid, returned to the car approximately an hour and a half later, he discovered the unconscious toddler in the backseat, according to Israeli news site Kikar HaShabbat.
Witness told B’Chadrei Chareidim that situation was heartbreaking.
“The picture of the father standing next to his car screaming is something that I will never forget,” said one bystander.
According to initial investigations, the father had gone out and when he got home, he forgot that his daughter was in the back seat of his car. When he realized his mistake, the father ran outside to the street and asked a passing car to take him and the baby to the Magen David Adom station at the entrance to Beitar Ilit.
Paramedics tries to resuscitate the girl, and realizing that she was in critical condition, rushed her to Shaare Zedek Medical System in Jerusalem where she was pronounced dead by doctors. Chana Rina Feldman’s funeral was held this afternoon at 4 PM, followed by burial on Har Hamenuchos.
Ten days ago a nine month old girl from Arad died after being accidentally left in the car by her grandmother.
The grandmother had taken her daughter to work and was scheduled to drop the baby off at day care. Forgetting the child in the backseat, the grandmother went to work and when she went to pick up her daughter they realized that the baby had been left in the car.
As paramedics tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate the little girl, the devastated grandmother was heard shouting repeatedly, “How could I have done this?”
