A 39 year old pregnant woman had to be rescued on Wednesday afternoon from a rocky area at the beach in Maro after she became trapped.
The woman and her partner were in an inflatable dinghy when it hit the rocks and capsized, trapping them. The man managed to swim out and alert the Emergency Services.
Lifeguards and Guardia Civil officers tried to reach her by sea but were unsuccessful and so the Fire Brigade hauled her up the cliffs, a distance of about 60 metres, using a series of ropes.
The woman was successfully rescued and suffered no injuries as a result of her ordeal.
