A 12-year-old boy was found dead Thursday evening in a Tel Aviv apartment in which he lives with his mother.

Initial reports indicate that a fire broke out in the apartment two days ago and that the boy was taken to a hospital after inhaling smoke. On Thursday, after he and his mother went back there to clean up, the boy suddenly lost consciousness. It is assessed that he was poisoned from inhaling smoke particles.

Tomer Gosman, an MDA paramedic, said the boy was lying unconscious and without a pulse in the building's stairwell, as residents were trying to resuscitate him.
