One man, a native of Canada, suffered a fall this afternoon on the Levada 25 Fontes in Rabaçal, with minor injuries.

The victim 43, fell from a height of about 20 meters but managed to get to the levada with the help of a group, who pulled him through a human chain.

The alert was given to the Calheta Volunteer Firefighters, who then travelled to the scene with an ambulance and a vehicle all equipped for rescue, which was not used, since the victim was able to reach the ambulance by his own means.

It should be noted that 12 members of this corporation were in the locality, that they travelled the levada during approximately 40 minutes until reaching the victim and to give the due aid.
