A 37-year-old British woman died around 11am this morning in a cycling accident on the TF-436, the Buenavista to Santiago del Teide road. The accident happened around 1km from Masca village heading towards Santiago del Teide.
Emergency services were initially called to the accident, but due to the road being impassible after the recent storms, rescue efforts were significantly hampered, and mountain rescue helicopters were called in. She was airlifted to Adeje Bomberos helipad even while resuscitation efforts were continuing, but it was to no avail, and on arrival at Adeje, ambulance medics could do no more than confirm her death.
