Walker dies in Masca
A search for a walker reported to be in distress in the Masca barranco ended in tragedy when he was found dead.
The emergency services were called in following reports that the man of advanced years appeared to be in trouble.
A group of firefighters began the search by climbing down the barranco whilst other rescuers started the journey from the base of the walk upwards.
Sadly, the body of the 72-year-old man was found along the pathway.
