This video shows the dramatic mountain rescue of a woman climber who is airlifted to a helicopter after falling and breaking her leg.
The climber, whose name has not been disclosed, injured herself in Charca Verde in La Pedriza de Manzanares on the southern slopes of the Guadarrama mountain range near Madrid.
According to official sources, the 60-year-old broke her tibia and fibula when she fell, and had to be airlifted to hospital.
