Emergency services co-ordinated a dramatic rescue mission in La Trapa


GUARDIA CIVIL rescued a hiker who was trapped on an 80-metre-high rock wall in La Trapa area of the Tramuntana Mountains in Andratx. 

He called the emergency services himself, saying he was unable to move up or down, and the Mountain Rescue Group (GREIM) as well as Mallorca firefighters rushed to the area, finding the young man 80 metres from the bottom of the wall and 60 metres from the top.

He was showing signs of anxiety, didn’t know what to do and was at risk of falling. A complicated rescue mission followed in which ropes were used to descend to where the hiker was trapped and he was then winched up by helicopter.
