Four people, including a four-year-old boy, were injured Friday evening when a sheet of glass from a nearby building fell on diners at a north Tel Aviv restaurant.
The boy was moderately injured and three adults were lightly wounded at the scene. Paramedics treated the injured and transferred them to the hospital for further medical care.
The incident happened at the Seatara restaurant in the Sea and Sun compound on Herzl Rosenblum Street.
Police said they have opened an investigation.

Diners at the restaurant said it was “nothing less than a miracle” that more people weren’t hurt, according to the Walla news site.
“There was a boom, but not like an explosion. I thought a wine bottle fell and then there was a little hysteria because people were cut,” the news site quoted a diner as saying.
“People were stressed, because after all this is Israel. You hear glass, you immediately think that everything here is going to explode,” he added.
Seatara noted that the roof of the restaurant did not collapse and the sheet of glass fell from one of the top floors of another building.
“We wish a speedy recovery to those injured by the shards of glass and hope for quiet and calm days,” the restaurant said.
