A 28-year-old woman had to be transferred by sea yesterday from the Natural Park of Calblanque, after suffering a fall in an area where rescue services have no easy land access, according to the emergency services’ coordination centre in Cartagena.
The incident occurred at around 14.25, when a call was made to the 112 emergency services number, requesting medical help for a woman who had fallen three metres and said that she was unable to move, although she was at least conscious.
The caller said that she was in an isolated cove in the Natural Park of Calblanque which is impossible for ambulances and motor vehicles to reach.
A boat with medical staff on board was dispatched to the scene by the Civil Protection Service of Cartagena Town Hall, and on arrival it was found that the woman was not suffering any serious injury.
The press release states that the young woman was taken to the port of Cabo de Palos, from where a rapid intervention vehicle belonging to Civil Protection transferred her to the Santa Lucía hospital in Cartagena.
And the moral of the story is: always take a mobile phone when attempting to climb down into rocky, isolated beaches!
