Ashdod Woman, 74, dies

A 74-year-old Ashdod woman died overnight Tuesday, while babysitting her 4-year-old granddaughter. The woman was found only on Wednesday morning, when neighbors who had heard the child crying throughout the night came to investigate. Police alerted the child's mother, who was working a night shift, who returned home and accompanied her daughter for psychological treatment. The victim apparently died from head wounds she sustained after falling in the shower.
