Teenage cyclist hurt in Las Cañadas 

A 15-year-old British boy had to be airlifted to hospital after a biking accident in Las Cañadas del Teide.

The emergency services were alerted to the incident in the mid-morning and sent out a full squad of rescuers, including the police, Civil Guard, Red Cross, medics and fire service.

The teenager had come off his bike whilst riding on the TF-21 in the Teide National Park and suffered moderate injuries.

He was treated at the scene before being airlifted to Tenerife’s north airport and then on to hospital.

A 112 spokesman said he had chest trauma.
