An IDF officer has died in a tragic accident during a holiday in Chile.

22 year-old Lieutenant Noam Rubinstein froze to death after breaking her ankle whilst hiking in the mountainous north of the South American country.

Her hiking companion - also an Israeli citizen - left her to get help, but by the time rescuers had arrived it was too late.

The army said her family had been informed.
