There’s been another tragedy involving a child in the haredi Burka Cult sect, this time in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Shearim, Ma’ariv reported.
A one-year-old baby was found near death on the floor of an apartment by neighbors yesterday afternoon. Hatzolah was called and performed CPR when they arrived. As the rescue team worked they kept asking for the baby’s parents or family. No one replied.
After a time, a woman wearing a burka entered the apartment and admitted to being the baby’s mother.
She told Hatzolah members that the whole family was sick with the flu, including the baby, and in the she was glad he fell asleep that morning.
When asked if the baby had received a flu vaccine mother replied, "We do not believe in vaccines."
Magen David Adom paramedics also responded to the scene and stabilized the child enough to transpot him. He was taken to Shaare Zedek Hospital where the baby was pronounced dead.
Police were called. The parents are suspected of child neglect. The baby's cause of death has not been officially determined, but is thought to be influenza.
Last year a Burka Cult woman refused to go to the hospital to give birth because it was Shabbat. She gave birth in an apartment with the help of her husband and then tried to conceal the birth until after Shabbat, endangering herself and the baby.
In recent years, the cult also had horrific child abuse scandal that shook Israel. Even today there are widespread reports of child abuse and child neglect associated with it.
