A long way down: A true story

Earlier this year, one of our team was out exploring the remoter parts of Camp de Mar and reported on the construction of a new cliff edge villa. This was being built in front of an existing villa, and adjacent to another that was being extended. Now news reaches us of a spectacular accident in that area of Carrer Gerani.

According to the media, an excavator working on one of the two sites - we're not sure which - fell 50 metres into the sea, with the operator jumping from the digger in time to save himself by landing in some pine trees on the way down. A feat not unknown to many a Hollywood action star!

You can read more here and here with photos.

A long way down is reference to the movie featuring ex-Bond actor Pierce Brosnan - a man used to jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire - that was filmed partly in Camp de Mar.
