EIN GEDI, Israel, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- An American was killed Monday in what is being called the fiercest flooding Ein Gedi, Israel, has seen for years.
Police and rescue officials said the man's girlfriend was found alive by rescue services, The Jerusalem Post reported Monday.
The woman was trapped in the Nachal David gorge Monday after the body of the male American tourist was discovered in the water, the newspaper said.
Rescuers noticed a pair of high-heeled shoes in the victims car, leading them to assume a woman was lost in the gorge, the Post reported. Israeli army helicopters and police were dispatched and found the woman.
Thirty other travelers stranded by flash floods in another riverbed nearby were also rescued without injury.
