A 34-year-old San Pedro del Pinatar man had to be rescued by helicopter on Saturday, after he fell some 15 metres whilst climbing in the Rut area of the Sierra de Redovan.

The climber suffered leg and hip injuries after the knot in the safety rope came undone, with his fellow climber calling the emergency services. A helicopter took him down to a car park, where an ambulance transferred him to the Vega Baja Hospital in Orihuela.
