Little girl who survived tourist boat accident that killed grandmother is discharged from hospital

April 6, 2015 11:12

Five-year-old Liran Yifrah, who nearly drowned less than a month ago when a tourist boat overturned off Jaffa Port but whose grandmother died in the accident, was discharged from Holon’s Wolfson Medical Center on Monday. The child will now go for rehabilitation in Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer.

Although she had arrived at the hospital fighting for her life, during the past few days she has been doing well enough to feed herself and meet in the pediatrics department with friends from her kindergarten. Dr. Zion Huri, who was in the medical team that treated her, said her survival was a” medical miracle.”

On March 17, her family rented a little boat that quickly overturned, causing the drowning of her 67-year-old grandmother.

The police are still investigating the accident and Yisrael Modar, the captain of the boat.
