A 49-year-old British tourist was rescued by "surprised" Tenerife firemen after an energetic shag ended with her dangling naked by her ankle from a flight of holiday apartment stairs.
The unfortunate victim of decidedly unsafe sex - named only as "AMAM" - was indulging in "frenzied" rumpy-pumpy with her husband on a landing of the stairs in Adeje when she took a tumble over the handrail.
She fell several metres, but came to a sudden stop just above the ground when her right ankle got stuck between two metal balusters. Hubby's call to the emergency services propted the swift arrival of local and national police, an ambulance and a fire engine.
Despite the initial shock of the sight of a disrobed middle-aged Brit hanging upside-down, firemen didn't beat around the bush, and forced the balusters apart to free the victim.
An initial inspection of the ankle suggested nothing more serious than a minor fracture, although medics decided a trip to hospital was in order.
The tourist's memorable night continued in dramatic fashion when the ambulance's lights and siren clapped out, obliging a police car to open a passage to the hospital. ®
