Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera reported a very rare and sad event on Sunday – a newborn baby was found dead in his cradle in the hospital’s neonatal unit. The cause of death is unclear.

The baby was taken care of by the baby’s nurse shortly before being found without signs of life in the crib. Medical staffers tried to resuscitate him for a long period, but eventually they had to determine his death.

The baby was born in a normal birth, but due to jaundice he was in a special high-intensity light care for the babies. The family, from the Hadera area, refused the autopsy despite the medical staff's request. The Health Ministry was informed.
