Hiker airlifted from barranco 

The emergency helicopter had to be called in to rescue a 59-year-old German man who fell whilst walking in Adeje’s Barranco del Infierno.

The incident happened in the mid-afternoon, leaving the hiker with an injured leg and unable to continue by himself.

Firefighters and the police were among the emergency services called out but because of the difficult location, the helicopter was needed to airlift him to safety.
