Bnei Brak: Sukkah breaks baby's fall from 3rd floor

Parents find their 14-month-old baby lying fully conscious in building's sukkah after he fell from apartment's window; infant transferred to hospital with small bruise on his head

A 14-month-old baby from Bnei Brak was lightly injured Thursday when he fell from a third floor apartment window onto a sukkah, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.


The sukkah that broke the baby's fall was located in the building's courtyard and was empty at the time of the incident. At around 5 pm the baby's parents heard screaming and rushed downstairs after realizing that their infant son was not in the apartment.


After finding their baby lying inside the sukkah, fully conscious with only a slight bruise on his head, the parents summoned a Magen David Adom emergency team, which transferred the baby to the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer for further treatment.


The mother said the baby had apparently climbed onto a small bench located near the window and then fell.
