Modi'in Ilit: 7-year-old Swept into Stormater Reservoir

Paramedics of the Hatzalah Union undertook a widespread search, Friday morning, for a seven-year-old girl who was swept from her father's arms into a stormwater reservoir at Heftzibah Square, which is connected to a streambed next to Modi'in Ilit, about halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. People are fearing for her life.

Divers, fire and rescue units, and people on all-terrain vehicles assisted in the search.
