BENIDORM’S Aqua Natura Park staged a mock rescue by fire fighters of the 112 service last Saturday (17th September), in a dry run for a real emergency.
The idea was to simulate a real life emergency at the park, coordinating staff and rescue services.
A volunteer feigned injury on one of the central islands and was brought to shore, from where they were winched into a rescue service Bell helicopter and taken to a “hypothetical” hospital.
The helicopter crew were lowered by winch with their stretcher, some 45 feet to the ground to simulate the position where their aircraft could not land.
