2. Refuah Shelaima -- 18 month old baby [nearly] drowns in NY State Catskills Cholent Pot.
"The cholent that caused disaster: a family vacationing in the Catskills left a burning hot plate with a large pot of cholent on an unsafe place for Shabbos. On Shabbos morning, when the family's 18 months old baby played near the hot plate, she somehow found her way into the pot.
Several Hatzolah members who were staying at one of the Yeshivas in Swan Lake were rushed to the scene to treat the baby. They quickly evacuated her to the hospital. The baby sustained second degree burns to her whole body, however one of the Hatzolah members told 'Etrog' that she will be alright with Hashem's help. " (source)
