If you ever decide to go walking up Ibiza's mystical rocky crag, Es Vedra, be sure not to fall, or a similar fate to Alejandro S. E. of Puig den Valls could await you

If you ever decide to go walking up Ibiza's mystical rocky crag, Es Vedra, be sure not to fall, or a similar fate to Alejandro S. E. of Puig den Valls could await you. Alex unfortunately fell as he was clambering up the side of Vedra, broke his ribs and, in tremendous pain, was unable to move. Luckily his companions were able to call 112 (the emergency number) whereupon the Guardia Civil quickly despatched their Special Sub-Aquatic Activities group to the scene. Some time later they decided that aqualungs and flippers were not best suited to mountain rescue operations and so called in the Special Mountain Intervention Group who arrived by helicopter and transferred Alex to hospital by the same method. The quick thinking and efficiency of the authorities meant that the whole operation only took from just after noon until 5 o'clock!
