The man who fell into a well Friday in Judea and was killed is Hillel Rudich z"l, 32, of Tekoa.

His funeral will take place at 9:00 a.m. Sunday, at the Tekoa cemetery.

Police have determined that there was no foul play in the tragic death.

Rudich went with his children to the Hariton Cave near the community for a hike. He tried to pull a play ball out of the well, but lost his footing and fell into the well.

Another hiker found the children crying and called the security forces. Several hours later, divers from the Etzion Rescue Unit succeeded in extricating the body from the water.
