A Sea-Rescue helicopter was used to rescue two men in kayaks below the Punta de la Mona in La Herradura after they capsized and were being swept towards the rocks.
The S&R helicopter, Helimar had to carry out some hairy manoeuvres in order to be able to get in close enough to lift them out of the water.
The Coastguards had received an alert around 15.20h on Tuesday to say that the two men in their 50s couldn’t get their kayaks righted and were struggling in the water to keep away from the rocks.
Once fished out, the men were taken to the Motril Heliport were they were given a quick check over by waiting medical staff before being allowed to return to their families.
