Isaac Meir Weis, a 31-year-old resident of Bnei Brak, passed away on Sunday after suddenly collapsing while sitting shiva for his infant son. Magen David Adom (MDA) was called to Weis' home, where they preformed CPR. He was taken to Shiba hospital in Tel-Hashomer, under respiration, but after a while he was declared dead.
Weis' son died last Thursday after he was found unconscious in the apartment in Bnei Brak. He was evacuated in serious condition to receive medical treatment in Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center, where he was declared dead. Police arrived at the scene and opened an investigation into his cause of death.
About a month ago, a toddler was strangled to death after a drape wrapped around his neck in a kindergarten in Haifa. Paramedics gave him medical treatment and took him to Rambam hospital in the city while preforming CPR, but they were not successful and he was declared dead.
