Zohar suffers from hydrocephalus, a neurological condition which is caused by abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid, which can put pressure on the brain and can cause possibly fatal damage.

In a statement given to News12 New Jersey, Adams has expressed her anger at the situation.

She tells the outlet: “As a single mom to a special-needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces.

“I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures.”
