British man found alive and well after a night’s searching by emergency teams on Teide

Update 4pm: The Guardia Civil is now saying that this man was not equipped adequately for mountain climbing. I suspect that that statement alone is a precursor to a bill being sent out for the rescue, since it is one of the factors specified in the legislation providing for charges to be made for risky activities: see HERE.

Original post 7 May: Emergency teams were in action throughout the night in the Teide national park looking for a British man after receiving reports that he had fallen and injured himself while climbing Teide. From midnight, bomberos, search and rescue teams, Cruz Roja and the Guardia Civil were involved in the search, and at 8am, thankfully, he was found with a leg wound but otherwise alive and well by staff at the Teleférico.
