Three-year-old Baruch Eisenberg was killed today by a bus on HaChozeh m’Lublin Street in Betar Illit. The family who is originally from Monsey, New York, came to visit the city for the Pesach. Police said the initial investigation reveals that for an unknown reason, Baruch, standing on the sidewalk, grabbed his mother’s hand while they were together on the sidewalk and he suddenly fell to the road and was hit by the bus. He was found with multi-systemic injury and without vital signs, and the MDA crew was forced to declare his death.
United Hatzala volunteer EMT Elazar Roth who was one of the first responders at the scene said: “I arrived together with members of United Hatzalah’s Ambucycle Unit and we saw the boy who had been hit by a bus. We initiated treatment, but sadly, due to the severity of his injuries he was pronounced dead at the scene.”
