Ferry crash injures women passengers
THREE women, aboard a Fred. Olsen Express ferry from Fuerteventura, were slightly injured last Sunday when it crashed against a pier in the Playa Blanca port, in the south of Lanzarote.
As reported by the 112 emergency services, the accident occurred after 7.30pm, during boat-docking manoeuvres, and the trio all suffered injuries: one to her head, one on the side and the third on a leg.
The first was transferred to the Playa Blanca health centre, and the other couple to Arrecife’s Doctor Molina Orosa Hospital.
The ferry covers the regular line between Playa Blanca and Corralejo (Fuerteventura).
