An­gling com­pe­ti­tion ends in bro­ken bones

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

A fish­er­man who broke his leg and foot dur­ing a com­pe­ti­tion had to be air-lifted to hospi­tal from Jávea's re­mote Cala Sar­dinera cove.

The pa­tient, 66, was in the area as part of an an­gling tour­na­ment or­gan­ised by his club in San Vi­cente del Raspeig on Sun­day morn­ing when he fell down part of the cliff.

He had not caught any­thing by the time of his ac­ci­dent, mean­ing he was disqualified from the com­peition.

The Cala Sar­dinera is a steep rock­face above a beach only ac­ces­si­ble via a nearver­ti­cal foot­path, and was a reg­u­lar 'work­place' for fish­er­men who lived off their catch in the last cen­tury.
