A 50-year-old Finnish paraglider is in hospital this evening after a jump at Taucho, Adeje, went wrong this lunchtime. Emergency services were called out with reports that the man had fallen in an area of very difficult access, and after he was rescued by a search and rescue helicopter he was transferred to the Adeje Bomberos helipad with very serious injuries. Given his condition, emergency services dispatched a medical helicopter, whose paramedics stabilized him and then air-lifted him to Candelaria Hospital where he remains gravely ill.
