A leading Israeli fashion model was seriously injured Sunday after falling from her electric scooter in Tel Aviv.

As a result of the accident, which took place on the city’s Rothschild Boulevard, Shlomit Malka was treated by medics from the Magen David Adom ambulance service and taken to Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital unconscious and with a serious head wound.

Malka was sedated and put on a respirator at the hospital, where she was being treated in the intensive care unit. The hospital said her life was not in danger.

Upon hearing of the news of her injury, a number of Malka’s friends and family rushed to Ichilov Hospital, including her husband, actor and model Yehuda Levi.

Images from the scene of the accident showed that the path was wet and slippery due to the automatic watering system for the grass, which Hebrew media reports said may have caused her to fall from the scooter.

Friends of Malka said they were shocked to hear of the model’s scooter accident.

In addition to modeling, Malka was also a host of the popular television singing competition “The Voice” during its latest season.

Sunday’s accident came nearly two weeks after Israeli actress Lucy Dubinchik was seriously injured after falling from the fourth floor of an apartment building in nearby Jaffa.

Malka's scooter slid in the dew from trees above the pathway on Rothschild Boulevard.

Israeli model Shlomit Malka slipped in the residue of Rothschild Boulevard's ficus trees this morning, falling off her electric scooter and sustaining several injuries.

Passers-by said they found her lying on the ground, unconscious and having suffered a head injury. She has been transported to Ichilov Hospital, where she has been placed in a medically-induced coma. She remains in critical condition, unable to breathe on her own.  A paramedic called her condition ''unstable.''

The hospital has clarified that, though her condition is critical, her life is ''not in danger.''

Police have cordoned off the section of the pathway where she fell in order to prevent further injuries.

The municipality of Tel Aviv issued an apology after the accident, saying that its workers water the plants along the boulevards every day, and that "some dampness will occur.''
