A child nearly drowned Tuesday in Modiin Illit near a place where a young girl drowned a year ago. Like young Yael Shefer, the victim of last year’s tragedy, the boy was swept away by fast-running water that ran through the city following heavy rains.
Thankfully, rescue forces managed to drag the child from the water and save him at the last minute. He was found in good condition.
Residents expressed anger toward the municipality for not ensuring safer conditions in wake of Yael Shefer’s death.
