Israeli tourist drowns while tubing on Guatemalan river

GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — Guatemalan authorities say an Israeli woman has died in a river tubing accident in a popular tourist area.

The National Coordinator for the Reduction of Disasters said Monday that Hadas Ayash drowned in the Cahabon river near Semuc Champey, which is a natural bridge and major tourist attraction. Officials did not give her hometown in Israel.

Authorities say the woman apparently fell into the river, but additional details were not available.
