A middle-aged man was rescued by a maritime rescue launch after falling down part of a cliff in Calahonda yesterday morning.
A caller phoned in to 112 around 11.40h to say that a man had fallen from a cliff face onto rocks below, which were inaccessible other than by sea.
The emergency call centre despatched an ambulance, Salvamento Marítimo, the Policía Nacional, the Guardia Civil, as well as the Policía Local.
Salvamento Marítimo, based in Almería, despatched a fast launch, which was able to reach the 60-year old and take him to the beach in Calahonda, where a waiting ambulance took him to Hospital Santa Ana in Motril.
It appears that the victim had been fishing, perched on the cliff, when he fell over the side and down onto the rocks.
There is no news as to his condition.
