A 56-year-old man, his initials SP, was rescued after a disastrous fall into a stream in Bagni di Guida in the municipality of Bivongi (Reggio Calabria) during a day dedicated to a walk that he had decided to spend with a friend.

The Calabria Alpine and Speleological Rescue was activated around 8:40 by the 118 Operations Center of Reggio Calabria.

A team of technicians from the Aspromonte Alpine Station of CNSAS Calabria, later joined by a second team, promptly arrived on site and immediately provided first aid to the man.

Once stabilized, the 56-year-old, for whom polytrauma is suspected, was transported on a stretcher supplied by the Alpine Rescue to the town of Bivongi where, waiting for him, was the Locri 118 ambulance for treatment of the case.

The 56-year-old was transported to the Locri hospital.
