Hiker suffers open leg fracture 

A hiker who fell in Guia de Isora suffered an open fracture to her leg and had to be rescued by the emergency helicopter.

Members of the Tenerife Fire Insular Consortium, based in the San Miguel de Abona park, were called out after the accident on the footpath which connects El Chorco with La Fuente.

Volunteer firefighters from Guía de Isora and Adeje also collaborated in the rescue, as well as the Local Police and personnel of the Canary Emergency Service (SUC) and the GES helicopter.

Firefighters found the woman who was about an hour away from the start of the trail. Because she was unable to walk and the difficulty of access, an airlift was needed.
