Hiker airlifted after fall 

The GES helicopter was called in to rescue a wounded hiker who suffered a fall in Tenerife.

The accident happened in the Teide National Park in La Orotava in the early evening. The 47-year-old woman suffered leg injuries of a mild nature but was unable to continue walking. She was treated at the scene before being airlifted to hospital in the north.

Firefighters accompanied the rest of the hiking group until they got to the end of the trail.
