Worker plunges down ravine
Members of the Tenerife Fire Brigade Consortium, based in the San Miguel park, were called in to rescue a worker who suffered a fall from a wall into a ravine in the area of Las Aguelillas in Arico.
The alert was raised by a colleague who said the man had plunged from a considerable height.
Firefighters had to place the victim on a stretcher and spinal board before he was carried to safety.
The 45-year-old man was then taken on to hospital suffering from cuts and bruises of a moderate nature.
