Youth in critical condition after falling onto rocks and into sea in La Matanza area

A 16-year-old boy was badly injured around half past six this evening after falling in the coastal area of La Matanza de Acentejo in north Tenerife. Emergency services say that they were called out with reports that the youth had suffered serious head injuries in a fall from a considerable height onto rocks and then into the sea in the La Negra area, and that a leisure craft had rescued him from the water. A search and rescue helicopter was scrambled due to the difficulty of access and the injured youth was winched aboard and transferred to TFN where ambulance crew stabilized him and took him to University Hospital (HUC) where his condition is said to be critical.
