Israeli model Shlomit Malka slipped in the residue of Rothschild Boulevard's ficus trees this morning, falling off her electric scooter and sustaining several injuries.

Passers-by said they found her lying on the ground, unconscious and having suffered a head injury. She has been transported to Ichilov Hospital, where she has been placed in a medically-induced coma. She remains in critical condition, unable to breathe on her own.  A paramedic called her condition ''unstable.''

The hospital has clarified that, though her condition is critical, her life is ''not in danger.''

Police close off the section of Rothschild Blvd where Shlomit Malka fell

Police have cordoned off the section of the pathway where she fell in order to prevent further injuries.

The municipality of Tel Aviv issued an apology after the accident, saying that its workers water the plants along the boulevards every day, and that "some dampness will occur.''
