"El Tela"

Autor: José Aradas García

Andrés Parilla

el patrón qui arriesgó su vida
cuando el pesquero "TELA"
suffro un ataque terrorista el 16
de agosto de 1978, a pesar de
las graves heridas, se mantuvo
en el puente de mando,
alejando el barco de la costa y
salvando con su valor la vida de
sus compañeros.

Esta escultura es un homenaje
a todos los marinos que fueron
asesinados, herides o
secuestrados en la costa

The skipper who risked his life
when the fishing boat "Tela"

saving with his courage the life of
his companions.

This sculpture is a tribute
to all the sailors who were
killed, wounded or
kidnapped on the coast of Africa
