Stranded Montgo hiker rescued at midnight


The local police of Javea, two firefighters and six civil protection volunteers came to the rescue of a young hiker lost on the southern side of the Montgo near La Cova Ampla on Sunday evening.

The hiker was stuck on a cliff and as the sun began to set, he feared falling if he were to move up or down.

He called the emergency services and was able to describe where he was whilst also making signals with his flashlight.

The hiker was escorted to safety shortly after midnight.

Six civil protection volunteers were involved in the rescue operation whilst many of the firefighters of Denia were supervising the fallas.
