LHR Peñon de LoboA young lad was rescued by the Guardia Civil and a diver from Centro de Buceo de La Herradura after he became trapped at the foot of a cliff.

The incident took place next to Marina del Este around 18.30h yesterday after the minor became stuck on the steep terrain above Playa del Muerto. He had decided to take a short cut from the said beach to the Marina del Este.

It was the victim who used his mobile phone to call for help.

A Guardia Civil patrol arrived first but because of the nature of the terrain were unable to reach the lad, so they called upon the said diving school in La Herradura to help out with its small launch with a diver onboard.

The diver managed to get the minor to throw over his backpack first and then, as the helmsman couldn’t get the craft closer to the rocks, the diver swam over and brought the lad to the launch.
