Washed into the sea at Puerto de la Cruz
Every year, when the big waves roll ashore, official warnings are issued and the coastal promenades blocked. And just as regularly the precautions are ignored by people who dangerously underestimate the strength of the Atlantic. The pier at the lighthouse in Puerto de la Cruz is one of the most popular walks, which is beautiful when the sun is shining, but very dangerous when the waves are high. A 70-year-old foreigner who ran onto the pier on Sunday despite the barrier had to learn the hard way. A wave caught him and threw him onto the concrete blocks underneath, which act as breakwaters. The elderly man was very lucky. He was rescued with minor injuries to one leg and his head.
