An 18-year-old Jerusalemite has died after losing his balance and falling from a cliff at Yosemite National Park in California.

The youth, who has not yet been identified, was allegedly trying to take a photo at the time he fell to his death.


Israel’s Foreign Ministry Consular Affairs Department for Israelis Abroad is helping to make the arrangements to bring the boy’s body back to Israel to be laid to rest.

The boy’s family has been notified.
