Jerusalem: 3 Children Injured Playing with Lye Granules

Three young children were hurt today after playing with caustic soda granules in their Jerusalem home on Sha'arei Tzedek Street. A 1-year-old and 2-year-old were in moderate condition, while the third, 4-years-old, is in fair condition. Caustic soda is found in many heavy duty cleaning products, and is more commonly known as lye. 

United Hatzalah medics arrived at the scene to administer first aid, and Magen David Adom teams followed, whereupon they evacuated the children to a hospital for further treatment.
