Puig Campana

THE provincial fire brigade’s Rescue Unit were called out when a 67-year-old Briton fell while descending Puig Campana.

He was using the 1,406-metre mountain’s stone-strewn La Pedrera path when he slipped and fell, breaking his fingers in several places.

Four rescue unit members set out at around 7.45pm but when they reached the climber found that his blood sugar levels were dangerously low.

After following instructions from a doctor at Valencia region’s Emergency Informationa and Coordination Centre (CICU) they brought him down to a waiting ambulance in Finestrat shortly before 10pm.
