Dehydration played him in yesterday, a trick to a veteran pilgrim performing the pilgrimage route to Santiago in Seville. The Civil Guard in the Sierra Norte and the local police had to act Guillena and rescue a man of 65 years who was lost in a forest road Castilblanco. This neighbor of Lebrija initiated the Camino de Santiago last Tuesday; heat and dehydration caused his disorientation and physical problems that could not cope.

The man called to the emergency room at 18:00 pm, warning that he felt his legs and was dizzy. Six officers of the Civil Guard and police began searching the pilgrim, who was found two hours later in a no passable road, 4 kilometers from Castilblanco. Officers found the 65 year old man lying under the shade of a tree and disoriented. The pilgrim was treated at the Health Center Castilblanco de los Arroyos, but later was transferred to the Hospital Virgen de Valme.

Hay que tener mucho cuidado con el sol y el calor en el camino. Hay que ir siempre con agua para hidratarse.
