Big rescue operation in Barranco Los Carrizales
Last Saturday, at around 2pm, a rescue operation began at the Barranco Los Carrizales in Buenavista del Norte, after a man had slipped and fallen into the gorge. He had suffered a fracture of the tibia and fibula during a collision with a rock, and was in a place which was difficult to access. To make matters worse, a rescue from the air was impossible due to violent gusts of wind.
