[Update below. Video here.] It is with great sadness that we report the passing of a ten-year-old girl following an accident in Boro Park, Brooklyn.
The girl, Blima Friedman, was a daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Yaakov and Sarah Friedman of Boro Park.
The girl was walking with her mother at 60th Street and 18th Avenue at about 9:15 p.m. Tuesday evening when she was hit by a Honda Odyssey. She was pinned under the vehicle. Hatzolah paramedics arrived quickly to extricate the girl and treat her.
The girl was taken to Maimonides Medical Center, where her petirah was confirmed.
The driver, a 22-year-old male, was questioned by police.
The 33-year-old Mrs. Friedman, who was in her ninth month of pregnancy, was immediately taken to Lutheran Medical Center, where she delivered a healthy baby girl. She is said to be in stable condition.
Levaya details will be posted once they are finalized.
