Kauai firefighters rescued a hiker from the Alakai Swamp trail in Kokee last night.
At about 8 p.m., a woman was hiking along the Pihea Trail when she injured her ankle on the boardwalk, a county news release said. Hunters in the area assisted her until fire rescue personnel arrived.
Rescue workers carried her out with the help of hunters. She was put into a private vehicle and taken to Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital.
