Month-old baby drowns in hotel jacuzzi in Ashdod

A month-old baby drowns to death in a hotel Jacuzzi in Ashdod after apparently slipping from his mother’s arms as she was bathing with him.

Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the infant and rushed him to the city’s Assuta Medical Center, but they were unable to save his life.

An initial investigation found that the baby’s father was asleep and his mother climbed into the jacuzzi with him but he slid out of her hands.

“When they entered the room, we saw the baby unconscious and they were being instructed over the phone how to give him CPR,” a Magen David Adom paramedic who treated the baby says. “We gave him life-saving medical treatment that included medicine, mouth-to-mouth and massages, and we took him to the hospital.”
