Father, daughter killed after being sucked into Tel Aviv power plants' water pump

A 50-year-old man and his 7-year-old daughter were killed Saturday in a tragic accident in one of Tel Aviv's northern beaches.


The two were cannoning near the estuary of the Yarkon River and the Mediterranean Sea when their boat was sucked towards the Reading Power Plant's water pumps and then capsized. Their bodies were found near the pumps.


It remains unclear how they were pulled into the area. (Eli Senyor)
