Israeli child dies on flight home from Thailand Print E-mail

According to Israel media reports, a one-year old infant girl died on 19 October on an Aeroflot flight from Thailand to Moscow when she began experiencing health problems.

The baby, who reportedly had a genetic condition, died whilst returning with her family to Israel from a vacation in Thailand. The pilot of the airplane made an emergency stop in the Russian city of Kazan, but doctors were unable to resuscitate the baby and declared her dead.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry said it was aware of the incident, and that the Israeli embassy in Moscow asked the Jewish community in Kazan to assist the family.

In another tragic incident in Thailand, a 22-year-old Israeli woman has been killed in a diving accident on Koh Phi Phi Island, the Foreign Ministry reported on 6 October.

The woman was vacationing with her family. The family received assistance from the ministry and from Israeli Consul in Bangkok, who helped to arrange the body to be flown back to Israel for burial.
