For the second consecutive day this weekend, Honolulu Fire personnel had to rescue an injured hiker after falling from a waterfall, this time from the Kaau Crater Loop Trail Sunday.
Personnel had to do a similar rescue Saturday at the Maunawili Falls Trail.
The first unit arrived at 11:56 a.m. Sunday at the Kaau Crater Loop Trail on a report that a male in his 20s had sustained injuries to his hip and back after falling approximately 30 feet from a waterfall.
HFD personnel proceeded up the trail, located the patient at 12:33 p.m., and assessed and treated the patient. Air 1 also inserted HFD personnel at the patient’s location.
The patient was stabilized, packaged and airlifted to a landing zone at Palolo District Park and transferred to EMS personnel. No other injuries were reported.
