A 10-year old boy died Wednesday when a tree fell on him in an adventure park near Kiryat Gat. Salman Na’if Jabarin, from the Bedouin village of Al-Fura’a, was at a day camp outing at Action Park when the incident occurred.

“When we arrived, we saw a huge branch that fell on a bench where a boy had been sitting,” a Magen David Adom paramedic called to the scene said. Salman was declared dead at the scene due to head injuries.

The accident occurred as the boy sat at a picnic table, waiting for his friends to get off the bus. The police said they are investigating the incident.
