A 59-year-old German tourist suffered a fall late yesterday afternoon at Cais do Sardinha.
Due to lower limb injuries she was unable to walk, and had to be rescued by the Municipal Fire Department of Machico. The operation took six hours.
Originally SANAS were called out to the scene, but due to rough seas they were unable to access the site and a longer foot mounted operation had to be carried out.
After the operation was completed, the woman was transported to A & E.
