A two-year-old child was hospitalized in critical condition yesterday morning after being run over by a car outside a day-care center in south Tel Aviv.

The boy was still fighting for his life late yesterday, the Sourasky Medical Center reported.

Police detained the day care centers owner for questioning on suspicion of negligence.

At about 8 A.M. yesterday one of the three toddlers in a day-care enter in Tel Avivs Kfar Shalem neighborhood wandered outside.

For some reason the gate was not closed and the toddler walked into the parking lot near the buildings yard.

The day-care center owners husband, who drove up to take the couples nine children to school and kindergarten, said he heard the sound of a loud blow and then shouts by his wife and other people standing nearby.

He got out of his car and found the toddler lying motionless under the wheels. The child sustained a head injury and was taken indoors, until paramedics arrived to try to stabilize him.

The toddler was taken to Tel Avivs Sourasky Medical Center in critical condition.

Police questioned the woman in an attempt to find out how the toddler could have left the day-care center without anyone noticing.

At the same time traffic police are investigating the car accident.
Both the day-care center owner and her husband said they were deeply grieved over the incident and the woman asked the childs parents for forgiveness.

The couple was released after questioning and will be summoned to the police station again if needed, police said.
