In Nassau County, New York and other cities throughout the State, there are holiday festivals and celebrations. Grandparents, parents, and children celebrate the holidays together with food, song and dance. A good time is expected by all. Unfortunately, holiday gatherings are some times the site of unexpected tragedy, injuries to children and in the most tragic cases death. A 76 year old man lost control of his 2007 BMW X3 and crashed into a Channukah Wonderland party in commercial area of Woodmere, New York. A total of 14 people were injured including a child under the age of 2. The accident victims were taken to three local hospitals for evaluation and treatment. The BMW at issue was reported to be registered to Theodore Saretsky, a local psychiatrist. A local religious leader, Rabbi Heshy Blumstein of Young Israel of Hewett and his wife, Mimi, visited some of the injured at Winthrop hospital.
Channukah is celebrated as a holiday of miracles. Hopefully, the injured children and adults from this tragic automobile accident have a speedy recovery from their injuries. Once the initial shock of the injuries has passed, the parents and children will have to deal with additional issues of medical bills, therapy, and the pain and suffering of dealing with the injuries.
