A citizen of foreign nationality suffered a fall, at around 4 pm, while taking the levada walk between the Salgados area (Camacha) and the Moinhos (Caniço).
The woman who was accompanied by her husband, presented injuries, namely a fracture of a lower limb. The Municipal Fire Department of Santa Cruz admitted that to reach the place (already distant and difficult to access area), it took a while.
After receiving first aid, the woman – who is staying at a well-known hotel in Caniço – was sent to the Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital.
It should be noted that an ambulance and a support car with 5 men were called to the site.
