Regional Hospital of Malaga manager Jose Antonio Ortega thanked the regiment and said he hoped the tradition will continue for many more years.

The Spanish military's parachute jumps were set to return to Malaga this Easter with a special display at La Caleta beach on Holy Wednesday, but poor weather forced the cancellation of the event.
