Holidaymaker rescued from steep mountainous area
A 37-year-old holidaymaker from Switzerland got into trouble on Sunday evening at the Risco Los Guirres de Alajero in La Gomera. Shortly before nightfall, she realised that she had arrived at a point where she simply couldn't go any further. Neither forwards nor backwards were an option. That's why she called 112 herself and asked for help. Since it was a very difficult position to access, rescue from the air, by helicopter, was the only alternative. The rescue operation was successfully carried out by the Canary Islands Government's rescue team, GES. The Swiss woman was flown unharmed to safety at the La Gomera airport.
