Dramatic rescue from barranco 

PAGE 2 Dramatic rescue from  barranco

This was the dramatic scene as firefighters came to the rescue of a hiker who fell down a very deep ravine.

The walls of the barranco were so steep that the affected person was unable to get out by themselves.

The accident happened in the Chacama ravine between the municipalities of Arona and Adeje.

The 112 emergency control centre received a call for help and alerted the crew from San Miguel de Abona and volunteers from Adeje. Police also attended.

The injured party was eventually brought to safety by means of a harness and pulley system.
