An elderly ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman was beaten to death while on vacation in Mexico for the Sukkot holiday, according to police reports.
Mexican authorities said that Malka Dworkin, 72, of Toronto, Canada, was murdered during a robbery in her home in Mexico.
The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon. Several armed robbers broke into the home where Dworkin was staying. After they saw the old woman alone, the suspects beat her violently.
Emergency workers, who were alerted to the scene, transported the woman in critical condition to a local hospital.
After her family in Toronto were notified, the woman was transported to a hospital in Ontario, Canada, considered to provide excellent trauma treatment.
Unfortunately, when she arrived at the hospital, she was declared dead.
The family made arrangements, and she will be buried on Sunday, in Israel.
