Updated: Cliff-diving ends badly for man in Blue Lagoon

A 20-year-old cliff diver, reportedly, sustained spinal injuries after jumping from a high point in Cominotto, Armed Forces of Malta confirmed.

AFM said that the young man whit rocks while diving into the water.

The accident happened at around 15:30p.m., and an AFM Alouette helicopter was dispatched; because of the nature of injuries the man sustained the aircraft had to land on Comino instead of winching the man onboard.

The patient was airlifted to AFM Air Wing Base were an awaiting ambulance took him to Mater Dei Hospital for further medical treatment.

Last week five persons were injured while cliff diving in Blue Lagoon.
