Dramatic airlift at beauty spot 

PAGE 5 DRAMATIC

This was the dramatic scene when firemen from Icod de los Vinos were called in to rescue a person who had fallen on the rocky coast of Diente de Ajo in Teno in the municipality of Buenavista del Norte.

The 40-year-old man fell in the area near the lighthouse and suffered various cuts and bruises.

The emergency helicopter was called in to help and because of the difficult location, had to airlift the hiker to safety. The Civil Guard, medics and police also attended.

He was then taken to hospital but was not in a serious condition.
