THE emergency services successfully rescued a Belgian walker from the top of the Tossal del Moro mountain in Gata de Gorgos after he suffered a suspected heart attack on Sunday.  

A Local Police officer and an expert mountain runner from the Gata de Gorgos council Sports department immediately rushed up the mountain carrying a defibrillator following a 112 call out from the walker’s companions.  

By the time they got there some 20 minutes later a fire service rescue service and helicopter had arrived. A SAMU health emergencies team also took part in the rescue effort.
