An operation to pull out the body of 22-year-old Israeli hiker Hillah Livne, who was today found dead after being missing since Sunday in Sary-Chelek nature reserve, is under way, the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Kyrgyzstan said in a statement.
According to the authorities, the young woman fell off a cliff to death. Her body is lying in between the rocks. 20 rescuers are now pulling the body out.
The body was found on September 29 by Israeli rescuers from Call Insurance in coordination with the help of the drone of a Russian professional film crew, which arrived in Kyrgyzstan for shooting videos.
“The drone was provided by the Russian film crew at the kind request of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Kyrgyzstan,” the Ministry said in a statement.
Clal Insurance is working to retrieve Livne’s body and to bring her remains to Israel for burial.
