LUCKNOW, India (AP) " An Israeli trekker died after falling into a Himalayan crevasse, the second such accident involving foreigners in northern India in the past week, police said Thursday.
Ariel Frajman was on an expedition with his wife and a son to the Gomukh glacier, which is about 4,460 meters (14,630) feet high in Uttarakhand state, police officer Daddan Pal said.
Frajman slipped and fell into a gorge on Wednesday, Pal said.
Arijail Spira, an Israeli embassy spokeswoman, said his body was being brought to New Delhi.
His death comes after two members of a Polish team died in the last week while scaling a 6,543-meter (21,466-foot) high peak in the area.
The Polish Union of Alpinism said Lukasz Chrzanowski was killed last Thursday during a rescue operation after he slid 300 meters (330 yards) and fell into a crevasse.
The union said his climbing partner, Grzegorz Kukurowski, lost consciousness and then died as the two men were close to the top of Mt. Shivling.
The snow-bound hills and valleys in Uttarakhand state are a major attraction for trekkers and mountaineers from around the world.
