Scuba diver in hospital after harpoon accident in Puerto de Santiago

A scuba diver was injured late yesterday afternoon when he accidentally shot himself in the leg with a harpoon while diving in Puerto de Santiago. The 48-year-old was pulled out of the water by passers-by and emergency services were called. He was taken by ambulance to the helipad at Playa de la Arena, from where he was transferred to TFN by helicopter, and from there to HUC hospital by ambulance. Apart from the injuries to his leg, however, he is thankfully not in serious condition.  Gobcan Cecoes 112
