The "La Opinion" and "El Dia" newspapers have a slightly different version of the story
26 OF NOVEMBER OF 2006
Emergency services received a call around noon on Saturday saying that a huge wave had sucked three fishermen into the sea
They were fishing off the rocks in the La Hondura area of Puerto de Santiago in the municipality of Santiago del Teide.
One of the men a 63 year old was rescued by a seargant and an officer of the Local Police and was transferred to the Hospiten Sur where he was able to tell emergency workers that two NOT three people had been pulled into the sea
He and the other man who was his brother both come from Santa 'darsula. The other brother has disssapeared without trace.
The bad conditions of the sea made it difficult for Marine Rescue to attempt a search, and later, experts from the Civil Guard Subaqueous Activities Special Group. The Guardia Civil Divers dropped into the sea near the Barcel'f3 hotel, but they did not find the missing man.
The strong waves that affected the South of the Island yesterday meant that in almost all beaches red flags were flying
In the nearby Playa Arena beach the red flag was also flying at the moment when emergency services worked in the search of the fisherman.
An Emergency helicopter flew up and down the coast, whilst the Voluntary Firemen of Santiago del Teide and Guardia Civil out of Guia de Isora were also on call.
The search for the missing man's body resumed today, Sunday- but it has so far not been located
