NRJ Cala del PinoA young man was slightly injured last Sunday after abandoning his inflatable sunbed in the sea and coming ashore on a rocky area below a cliff in Maro, Nerja.

It was 16.45h when the emergency number 112 received a call to say that several young men had swam out on airbeds in Cala del Pino and couldn’t get back in. The Maritime branch of the Guardia Civil, Protección Civil, and the Policía Local were despatched to the scene.

According to Protección Civil, three young men had gone out and two had managed to return to the beach, whereas the third had reached a rocky area where he had received several injuries.

The victim, a 26-year-old man, was taken to the Axarquia area hospital in Velez-Málaga, by helicopter, where he was treated for bruises and cuts at 19.48h.

The helicopter had been necessary because the victim was at the base of a cliff with difficult access.
