Round Top, NY - Teenager R’L Dies After Falling Off Tree

Round Top, NY -8:25PM EST: We regret to inform you of the tragic Petira of 16-year-old Bochur (teenager) Yoel Yehuda Levi Z”L who fell out of a tree at the Kiryas Yoel Camp in Green County. Following the 20+ foot fall, a medevac was unable to fly him to a Trauma Center due to his unstable condition, and he was transported by ground (ambulance) to a local hospital. Sadly, he was Niftar a short time after arriving at the hospital.
The noted Askan and Chaplain of the Green County Sheriff Department Rabbi Aryeh Leib Glantz is working along with Kiryas Yoel Hatzolah to have the body released and transported back towards the city.
UPDATE 9:00PM EST: Special Assistant to the Superintendent of the NYSP Rabbi Bernard Freilich has informed YWN that the state police are working to have the Niftar released ASAP. Additionally, Kiryas Joel Public Safety Director Moses Witriol is en route to the hospital where the Niftar currently is to assist in expediting the arrangements.
The Niftar is a son of Rav Yosef Dovid Levi Shlita a Magid Shiur in Satmar in Kiryas Yoel, and his grandfather is Rav Yosef Leib Cohen, the Menahel in the Yeshiva Gedolah in Kiryas Yoel.
Boruch Dayan Emmes….
