PUIG CAMPANA: Finestrat mountain dominates the Marina Baja credit: Ruben Ojeda

A WOMAN of 48 was helicoptered off Puig Campana after she injured her leg while walking on the mountain.
Owing to the inaccessibility of the spot where she slipped and fell, mobilising the Consortium of Fire Brigades helicopter was the only option for evacuating her from Finestrat’s 1,406-metre mountain.
The woman, a Santa Pola resident, was winched up into the helicopter and flown to San Vicente, from where she was transferred to hospital.
