Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

A pen­sioner was rushed to Ali­cante Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal on Tues­day morn­ing after fall­ing off his bi­cy­cle in El Verger.

Friends of the 81-year-old, who were out on their bikes with him, called emer­gency ser­vices when they found him un­con­scious on the tar­mac of the N-332 at about 10.30. Paramedics sta­bilised him and strapped him to a stretcher, as he ap­peared to have suf­fered sev­eral bro­ken bones and mul­ti­ple cuts and bruises.

Given his age and the sever­ity of his in­juries, he was air-lifted to the provin­cial cap­i­tal. His con­di­tion has not been con­firmed.
