3 People Burned with their Hametz

A seven-year-old boy suffered moderate to serious burns over the upper portion of his body, Monday, during the ritual burning of leavened products, ahead of Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which begins Monday evening. Executive Director Moshe Teitelbaum of the United Hatzalah emergency service said the boy tried to pour a flammable liquid on the fire in Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem, and his clothes caught fire.

A 30-year-old man and his two-year-old son suffered light facial burns under similar circumstances in Psagot, north of the capital.
