Drama as car plunges 50 metres down ravine
Two men were injured when their car left the road at Teno Alto and plunged 50 metres down a ravine.
One of them suffered multiple injuries and had to be airlifted to hospital by the medical helicopter. The second person was only slig-htly hurt.
The accident happened at about 10.30am on the Teno Alto road in Buenavista del Norte.
The car plunged down the ravine and came to rest against trees but was in danger of falling even further.
Firefighters therefore tethered the vehicle with ropes to stop this happening whilst the two wounded men were treated at the scene.
The fire crews came from Icod de los Vinos and La Orotava and were assisted by the voluntary firemen of Ycoden-Daute.
