A search and rescue helicopter had to intervene to help a German hiker this lunchtime after he fell while climbing the Roque del Conde. Paramedics determined that the walker had suffered back injuries, and after he was stabilized, he was flown to the Adeje Bomberos helipad, and then taken by ambulance to Hospitén Sur where he is currently being evaluated. The weather won’t have helped conditions for walkers on the mountain, since there have been several heavy downpours throughout the morning, occasionally torrential. Conditions are expected to improve over the next 24 hours, though some rain continues to be likely.
