A 50-year-old woman was injured to some extent following a crash on Curral das Freiras Road.
The car went off the road on a steep slope. Prior to the rescue, it was necessary to stabilise the vehicle.
Subsequently, the victim was rescued, who was still immobilised inside the car which needed to be brought to safer ground before removing her.
On the scene was an ambulance, as well as a rescue vehicle and four members of the Câmara de Lobos Volunteer Firefighters who transported the victim to the emergency room of the Dr. Nélio Mendonça hospital, where she is under observation.
