NRJ Rio Chillar AreaA foreign woman had to be rescued in the Parque Natural de las Sierras Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama.

The Guardia Civil’s mountain-rescue team, GREIM, back by Nerja’s Protección Civil, were out carrying out a nighttime rescue mission involving two foreign excursionists, both in their early 60’s.

The couple had been on a walk in the Sierra de Frigiliana in the Lomas del Chíllar area, when they got into trouble.

The emergency number 112 received an alert at 20.03h and immediately sent out the GREIM to find and bring them in. The team entered the area via Río Higuerón and soon found them in the aforementioned area.

The man was not injured but the woman had a twisted ankle, so the team brought her back down on a stretcher to Frigiliana where she was transferred to the Nerja Centro de Salud. The rescue operation was logged as concluded at 23.00h
