modiin-illit-stream-nachalA 7-year-old girl who fell into the Modiin stream near the village of Naalin amid stormy weather died today. The girl, who was rescued from the water by firefighters and United Hatzalah volunteers, was taken to the Chaim Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.

She arrived at the hospital unconscious and suffering from contusions and hypothermia. Resuscitation efforts ultimately failed and doctors were forced to pronounce her dead.

Hospital officials said the girl arrived without a pulse and with a very low body temperature.

An initial police investigation suggests that the girl took a walk with her father near the stream which had overflowed to the extent it almost reached houses in Kiryat Sefer.

At one point the father lost touch with his daughter and called rescue forces. The girl had apparently fallen into the stream. She was later pulled out by a firefighter.

“After scanning the area for about an hour and a half we saw a figure under the water wearing clothes which matched the description we received,” one of the volunteers said. “One of the firefighters jumped in the water and pulled the girl out.”

The volunteer added that after some resuscitation efforts the girl was taken by a police helicopter to the Chaim Sheba Medical Center.

  1. An IAF chopper is working overhead in the hope of assisting ground forces. Members of the elite 669 search and rescue unit are doing their utmost to locate the girl, realizing the importance of the time factor due to the rising waters and frigid conditions. Military divers are also working to locate the missing child in the nachal.

    There are great people in ISRAEL who are always available 24/7 to rescue, help and assist YIDDEN. (usually part of the IDF system)

    Would it have made any difference to the wording of your comment, torah is truth #1, if you had realized that the village of Na’alin is a Muslim village in the West Bank?
