Two hikers injured in fall on Mokolii islet

Rescue crews with the Honolulu Fire Dept. were called to help two hikers who fell off the backside of the Mokolii islet (aka Chinaman’s Hat) in Kaneohe Bay Saturday.

The call came in at 2:32 p.m. that two male members of a hiking group fell some 30-to-40 feet.

A rescue boat went out to the island to assess the patients and an Air One helicopter picked up the injured hikers.

The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time. The patients were transferred to Emergency Medical Service personnel at 3:17 p.m.
