Civil Guard personnel went to the scene as soon as possible and on arrival found that a vehicle with a woman inside had indeed fallen into a ravine, about 30 metres high, very steep and with a lot of vegetation. With the support of the Local Police of the town of Tíjola, they looked for the safest way for the arrival of the fire brigade to access the vehicle. The fire brigade, using tools such as axes and hoes, managed to clear the ground of reeds and brambles.
