A six-year-old child was seriously injured and a motorbike rider killed in two separate accidents within an hour on La Orotava roads yesterday evening. The little boy was run over around 6pm in Avda República de Venezuela in the town itself, and was transferred to HUC with serious head injuries. At 6.50pm, emergency services were being called out again to the accident involving the motorcyclist, whose bike had left the road in the national park above La Orotava. A helicopter took paramedics to the incident but sadly there was nothing they could do for the man, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
