A 30-year old man is safe this morning after running into trouble near the Haiku Stairs, also known as Stairway to Heaven.
Honolulu firefighters got the call for help just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday.
Officials say the man, originally from Turkey, broke his ankle while apparently jumping a fence to gain access to the illegal trail.
He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
No word yet on if he faces any charges.
