Some of you may have seen some ***URGENT" spots this afternoon. This was me attempting to alert EA8/PA7ZEE Geert who is on Gran Canaria, to tell him that Victor EA8/GI4ONL, who is also there on holiday, had phoned me to say he had made a minor navigational error on his way to EA8/GC-012 and as a result had fallen some distance on a scree slope sustaining cuts and bruises. He had bandaged himself up with his first aid kit, but the injuries were minor.
Geert saw the alert and phoned Victor to provide the vital local support needed. It was decided that the best course of action was to telephone 112. As a result of that phone call Victor was quickly helicoptered off the summit (there was no time to set up for an activation considering the circumstances) and was taken back to the airport where he was able to take a taxi back to his car at the foot of the climb to EA8/GC-012.
Victor is now driving back to his hotel - fortunately without needing hospitalisation.
