Boruch Eisenberg, age 3, was hit by a bus on HaChozeh M’Lublin Street in Beitar Illit today. Volunteers attempted to resuscitate Boruch and initiated CPR. Unfortunately, after lengthy efforts, the boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
Members of United Hatzalah’s Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit treated family members and bystanders who witnessed the accident.
Boruch hailed from Monsey, NY, and his family had traveled from America to Israel for Yom Tov and were in Beitar Illit to visit family.
Boruch apparently broke away from his mother and ran into the street as the bus was passing.
The levayah will be held tonight at 9 p.m. at Shamgar, followed by kevurah on Har Hamenuchos.
