Mountain climber dies in India E-mail

While hiking along the Ganges River in India in October, Israeli mountain climber Ariel Freeman, 50, slipped and fell to his death – the latest in a string of hiker fatalities in the area over the past month.

Ariel Freeman, from Moshav Nir Tzvi, was hiking with his wife and fellow trekkers when the tragedy occurred. Those accompanying him were unable to report the incident until they reached an area with cell phone service. His body was recovered at the scene and taken to the police station in the town of Uttarkashi. The Israeli Foreign Ministry assisted the family and the body has since been flown back to Israel for burial.
