By Star-Advertiser staff


Honolulu Fire Department rescue personnel rescued two hikers who were injured in separate incidents on the Moanalua Valley trail today.

The first emergency call at 8:40 a.m. involved a woman in her 60s who had fallen about 10 feet on the trail and sustained multiple minor injuries. Rescue personnel found the woman about three-quarters of a mile into the valley and were able to transport her out on a stretcher.

Hours later, a woman in her 40s was injured in a fall near the intersection with the Koolau Summit. HFD personnel were able to land a rescue helicopter in a nearby clearing and transport the woman to the landing pad at Tripler Army Medical Center, where she was transferred to the care of Emergency Medical Services.
