A man was injured yesterday in a paragliding accident in Almuñécar in the area known as Loma del Gato.
The emergency call-centre, 112 received an alert at 12.20h from the victim who explained that he had crash-landed and was unable to move as he had injured one of his legs.
As the flyer had come down in an area with difficult access, not far from the launching point, a helicopter had to be used to rescue him. He was flown directly to Hospital Santa Ana.
