Manoa valley is a popular area for hiking especially on the weekends.

Three people were injured after a rock fell from above on Saturday afternoon.

The rock did not hit anyone directly.

Fire officials say the rock fell from an area above a waterfall off the Manoa Tunnel Trail.

The rock hit another area first then split into pieces and the flying pieces injured the hikers.

This happened around 2:30 p.m.

Fire officials say a 33-year-old man was injured on his leg. He declined treatment.

A 13-year-old girl injured her wrist. She was able to walk on out on her own.

A 7-year-old girl injured her back.
