Yeshiva Student Slips, Drowns on Hike

An 18 year old yeshiva student died on a hike in Wadi Qelt outside Jerusalem on Monday. The student apparently slipped and fell into a pool of water and drowned. A Magen David Adom crew pulled him from the water, but was unable to revive him.

Rescue workers said he was probably unconscious when he drowned, as he had apparently hit his head after slipping off the path and falling into the two meter deep water.
