A 15-year-old haredi girl in Lakewood, New Jersey was injured on Saturday when the sukkah she was sitting in with her family collapsed due to high winds and heavy rain.
According to a report in The Lakewood Scoop, during the main Saturday Shabbat meal a neighbor heard someone next door scream “call Hatzolah.” The neighbor placed the call and when Hatzolah arrived EMTs found a family of eight trapped beneath the rubble of their sukkah, which included broken 2 x 4s.
Most of the family did not need to be hospitalized, but the 15-year-old girl was rushed to the Jersey Shore Medical University Center. Her injuries are not life-threatening.
“It was a big Miracle,” a Hatzolah responder reportedly said.
