A German tour guide died on Saturday while leading a group of tourists on a hike in the Nachal Bokek region in the Judean Desert.
While the group was climbing up to an observation point, the guide, a man in his fifties, complained of chest pain and collapsed. Magen David Adom paramedics who responded the scene had no choice but to pronounce him dead. A search and rescue crew evacuated the man's body.
A similar case took place about month, when ago a 22-year-old resident of central Israel fell unconscious and died while hiking in the Golan Heights. Emergency response crews attempted to revive her, but to no avail.
