A German, paragliding enthusiast came down in a tree in Velilla, next to the church, around 16.00h this afternoon.
The rescue operation was so complicated that it required the help of the Guardia Civil mountain-rescue team because he was caught up in the branches so high up.
At the time of the writing of the article (19.24h) , the rescue was still on going, although according to Juan Manuel de Haro (Ideal), they were near to getting him down at last.
We also received a photo from Tristan & Jane Mosedale, which we reproduce here. Many thanks to both Tristan/Jane and Juan Manuel for the info and material
We shall update the article when more information comes in.
