A paraglider injured after suffering a fall in Piedra Playa.

The incident took place on the well-known beach in the north of Fuerteventura this afternoon at 2:27 p.m

A man who was paragliding in the northern part of the island had an accident in the area of Piedra Playa in El Cotillo. At the initial moment of care, he presented moderate trauma to the lower limb, except for complications, and was transferred by basic life support ambulance from the SUC, with the assistance of a doctor and nurse from the Health Center in the area, to the General Hospital of Fuerteventura.

At the time indicated above, the Emergency and Security Coordination Centre (CECOES) 1 1 2 of the Government of the Canary Islands received an alert stating that a paraglider needed medical assistance after suffering a fall in the area mentioned above.

Personnel from the SUC and the health center in the area assessed and assisted the affected person, who was in an area of rocks, to transfer him to the aforementioned hospital.

Members of the Extinguishing and Rescue Service of La Oliva collaborated in the evacuation of the paraglider to the area where the ambulance was located.
