Mom of Injured Tzfas Girl May Face Negligence Charges
Yechiel Spira • YWN Israel
Tzfas police are investigating the incident in which a 4-year-old girl fell from the family’s third story balcony, sustaining what was reported as a serious head injury. Officials in Ziff Hospital in Tzfas on Tuesday morning reported the girl’s condition as moderate.
Police report the child’s mother was busy in the house and unaware her child fell off the balcony until neighbors came running to inform her. It appears the child struck the motor portion of an air conditioner below, somewhat breaking her fall, and then hit the canopy of a first floor balcony. Neighbors report this chain of events saved her from a fatal fall.
Zaka responders who were on the scene report the girl sustained multiple fractures and serious head trauma.
Some of the EMS personnel who were operating on the scene confirm that the mother delayed transport to the hospital when she told them she cannot permit them to take her to a hospital until she first confers with a rav. The delay according to most was almost 20 minutes.
Tzfas Police Chief Ron Ofir confirms his investigation is still ongoing and there is a possibility the mother will be charged with negligence.
