Walker dies after falling considerable distance in Ifonche area

A walker died this afternoon after falling in the Ifonche area, often where walkers start their ascent of the Roque del Conde. Emergency Services say that they were called out shortly before 3pm by a fellow walker reporting that the man had fallen a considerable distance in an inaccessible area. He was located by a GES helicopter along with land-based search and rescue teams but found to be in cardiac arrest; he was sadly unresponsive to their attempts at resuscitation, and was declared dead at the Adeje helipad. At present no details are available about his identification.
