Hiker rescued after Teide accident 

A Polish woman aged 39 had to spend the night in Mount Teide’s refuge with medics after suffering a fall and hurting her leg.

The accident happened on a path near the Altavista Refuge and prevented the woman from continuing.

Due to the proximity of nightfall, it wasn’t possible to carry out the rescue so the affected woman spent the night in the shelter accompanied by health personnel, since she had a knee injury and her life was not in danger .

Early the next morning, the helicopter travelled to the area and was able to rescue the hiker, who was taken to the Tenerife North airport, where the ambulance of the SUC was waiting to take her on to La Candelaria Hospital.
