Guía de Isora
Deep, deeper, deepest!
Fun and games over the weekend as an ambulance rushed to the aid of a man on the beach at San Juan in Guía de Isora.

Desperate to get to his side as quickly as possible, the team decided to take the vehicle onto the beach and got trapped in the deep sand.  A fire-engine was sent for to tow them off, and that got stuck too.  Eventually, an army specialist vehicle was called in – and they too became stuck!

All three were eventually pulled free by a mechanical digger.  A surreal, Monty Python-style event that could only happen in the Canaries, or do you know of similar occurrences elsewhere?  Vastly amusing to the spectators no doubt, not so much so for the patient, who we hope is recovering well.
