School trip youngsters rescued by emergency services on school trip to Masca barranco

Two youngsters on a school trip to the Masca barranco had to be rescued just before 5 this afternoon.  Both were 17-year-old boys, and although one had suffered no worse than a sprained ankle, the other was suffering from an undefined problem, aparently a seriously raised pulse. The lad with a sprained ankle was transferred by helicopter to Adeje Consorcio helipad, from which he was transferred by ambulance to Hospitén Sur. The other boy is said to have been seriously affected by the walk but was stabilized at the scene before Bomberos took him by sea to Los Gigantes harbour – he was apparently very close to the coast when he was overcome – and from there he was taken by ambulance to Hospitén Sur.
