Polish woman hurt in hiking fall 

The rescue services had to be called in after a 42-year-old Polish woman suffered a fall whilst out walking in La Gomera.

The accident happened on the popular footpath from Caserío del Cedro to Hermigua in the municipality of Hermigua.

The 112 emergency control centre was told the woman had fallen and hurt one of her legs and was unable to continue.

The GES helicopter was moved to the area but due to the weather conditions, it could not carry out the rescue by air. Rescuers reached her by foot instead and she was stretchered to safety before being taken on to hospital.
