The rescue copter was out and it look like they were lowering the winch - does anyone know what was going on - it looked like it was in front of the Barcelo Hotel in Santiago?

  • There was a fisherman rescued off La Gomera yesterday when his boat sank. Maybe that was it. The man was taken to San Sebastian. See News in the Sun.

  • The Helicopter was operating for nearly an hour, mainly near the Los Gigantes hotel. It was a practice search  and rescue, it involved two small boats, locals from the marina, and practice winching from the sea.I watched it for quite a while from our pad, I saw the guys arrive back near the dive centre, they told us in El Rincon what had happened.
