BenQ Digital Camera

A YOUNG man suffered serious injuries after he jumped into the sea from the Illa del Descobridor.

The emergency services were alerted to the scene at around 8.00pm.

The Policia Local, Guardia Civil, Red Cross, firefighters and an ambulance attended and found the man – aged around 30 – on an inflatable dinghy that his friends had used to move him to the beach at Cala de Ambolo.

The man is reported by the Spanish press to have fractured both of his shoulders and injured both of his legs after jumping from the top of the small island.

Rescuers stabilised the man and carried him to the top of the Cala de Ambolo on a stretcher.

He was then taken by the ambulance to Hospital de Denia-MarinaSalud.
