Baby drowns in bathtub in Jerusalem

August 2, 2016  

A one and a half year old baby drowned in a bathtub in her house in Jerusalem tonight (Tuesday), her condition is very serious.

An MDA ambulance crew performed CPR on the baby and only evacuated her to the Hadassah Mount Scopus hospital when her pulse had returned.

MDA paramedic David Yelinick who arrived at the area told media, “when I came into the apartment I saw the MDA personnel performing CPR on a baby, around 18 months old, who was unconscious after having drowned in the bathtub.

“We gave her life-saving treatment, with advanced and continuous CPR that included medication and massaging, and when her pulse returned we immediately took her out to the hospital while continuing treatment,” he added.

Police investigators arrived at the scene too, and are now looking into the possibility of criminal negligence.

It should be noted that tragic incidents of drowning infants are especially common in the summertime.

Last week a two year old toddler drowned and died in a pool in a backyard in the city of Rishon Letziyon.

The MDA crew arriving there administered CPR and evacuated the child to the Assaf Harofeh hospital while continuing treatment, but their efforts proved tragically futile as the toddler was declared dead at the hospital.
