Earlier this year, 22-year-old Israeli Noam Rubinstein died following an accident in the Cerro Castillo National Reserve in Chile's Patagonia region. Rubinstein, who was in Chile on a post-army trip, was traveling with a friend on a mountainous trek known for its difficult weather conditions.

 

During the trek, Rubinstein stumbled on the mountain slope and injured her leg. Her friend tried to get help, but the rescue team only arrived hours later, by which time Rubinstein had died of hypothermia.
