A 15-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene, after falling from the ninth floor of a construction site in B'nei Brak on Wednesday.

Magen David paramedics arrived at the scene, and attempted to revive the young man with advanced resuscitation methods, but were forced to confirm his death.

"He was smoking a cigarette, leaning against the railing constructed in its entirety - and then fell to death," said Magen David Adom paramedics.
