Hiker critically injured in fall 

A Swiss woman sustained very serious injury after fallling several metres whilst out walking in La Gomera.

The emergency services were activated but in the meantime, another hiker who happened to be a firefighter helped the victim.

She had suffered a severe traumatic brain injury and was transferred in critical condition in a medical ambulance from the SUC to the Hospital Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe.

Rescuers of the GES helicopter with the collaboration of Valle Gran Rey Fire Department had airlifted her to the heli-surface of San Sebastián de La Gomera.
