Kauai County fire officials airlifted a 50-year-old male visitor from Washington state from Hanakoa Valley because he was suffering from dehydration.

The man had been camping in Kalalau Valley and was hiking back when he began feeling ill. A hiker in the area walked out to the trailhead and notified Kee Beach lifeguards of the situation at about 2:06 p.m. yesterday.

KFD units Rescue 3 and Air 1 responded to the call.

Rescuers aboard Air 1 located the man about 3:30 p.m. and airlifted him to the Princeville Airport, where he was treated and released.
