A 70-year-old man has been swept into wild seas at Puerto de La Cruz this afternoon. Emergency services say that they were called out after the man was washed away at the El Peñon breakwater (near the lighthouse). He has been transferred to hospital with leg and head injuries.

Please be very careful near the coast, and avoid going in the sea while these conditions persist, and do bear in mind that the Government reserves the right to charge anyone doing anything that violates an official warning (see HERE).
