A paraglider came down on the 23rd in Almuñécar resulting in the flyer being injured. The accident occurred in the afternoon in the area known as the Loma del Gato (above Taramay).
The emergency number, 112 received a call around 15.25h to say that a flyer had crashed against a tree. Immediately an ambulance and the fire service were despatched to the scene, as well as the Guardia Civil, who always enjoy a good chuckle (just kidding!).
The crash site has difficult access so a 4×4 ambulance belonging to the Protección Civil was used to reach the 45-year-old, male victim and bring him back to where the normal ambulance was waiting to relay him to Hospital Santa Ana in Motril
