A 77-YEAR-OLD British tourist was rescued on Monday (February 2) in Maro (Nerja) after suffering an injury when hiking.
Civil Protection, Fire Brigade and Guardia Civil officers attended the scene and aided the man who was spending his holidays in the town.
The man, together with other tourists, had started the route from the Nacimiento de Maro and was headed to the Cortijo de Molinero.
However, he suffered an injury to his ankle which prevented him from walking and the other members of the group alerted the 112 emergency service.
He was taken to Nerja’s health care centre to receive medical treatment.
