Missing Alicante youths found in their crashed car at the bottom of a 60-metre ravine

As reported by the Alicante Provincial Firefighters Consortium, two 18-year-old boys who had been reported missing on Friday, October 29, were located on Saturday 30. They had been missing for around 20 hours when their vehicle was discovered at the bottom of a steep 60-metre deep ravine in the municipality of Alcoy.

Firefighters rescued one of the boys, who was injured, along with the lifeless body of the other youth. Their vehicle was initially found at 4.33pm, by a friend who had been searching for them. The car had left the road and was lying in the ravine, off the side of the CV-710 between Benilloba and Gorga.

Upon locating the vehicle, the friend called the emergency services, who deployed the fire brigade from Concentaina park, along with a rescue helicopter, to the scene, along with police patrols. The rescued boy was transferred to hospital by a SAMU ambulance, reportedly with “very serious injuries”.
