Volunteer firefighters from Santana are on-site.

As reported earlier, several individuals were already walking on a trail that was still closed by the IFCN. We are referring to the Pico do Areeiro – Pico Ruivo trail.

According to the latest update, this afternoon a 25-year-old tourist was hit in the head by a rock at this location.

The Volunteer Firefighters of Santana, specifically their Rescue and Mountain team, have been dispatched to the scene to provide first aid to the injured young woman.

Normally, in these cases, insurance coverage may not work.

Initial reports indicate that she is conscious.
