Olga Borisov was indicted Thursday on suspicion of drowning her four-year-old son, Alon, off a Bat Yam beach. The charge sheet stated that Borisov, from Rishon Lezion, took the boy down to the beach while he was sleeping, adding that her actions were premeditated. In the August 29 incident, Borisov was spotted by youths pacing the beach and mumbling that she had drowned her son. Passersby located the boy in the water and jumped into the sea to pull him out. Paramedics tried to resuscitate the child but were eventually forced to pronounce him dead. Borisov told police that her son was "a burden."
