Israeli Mountain Climber Dies in India


An Israeli hiker was killed while walking along a cliff next to the Ganges River in northern India this week, Ynet reports.

Ariel Freeman, 50, from Moshav Nir Tzvi, was hiking with his wife and fellow trekkers when the tragedy struck. Those accompanying Freeman were only able to report the incident on Wednesday after they reached an area with cell phone service.

His body was recovered at the scene and was taken to the police station in the town of Uttarkashi.

The local police reported that this is the second time in two weeks that a foreigner had fallen victim to the treacherous mountainous area while hiking.
