Injured woman airlifted from Kauai trail

By Star-Advertiser staff


Coast Guard rescue personnel used a helicopter to airlift an injured woman Wednesday night from the Kalalau Trail area on Kauai's Na Pali Coast.

The Coast Guard dispatched a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Barbers Point Air Station after being notified by the Kauai Fire Department that a 25-year-old woman suffered a severe head injury. There was no information on how the woman was injured.

The helicopter left about 8:50 pm., reached the area at 10:40 p.m. and lowered a rescue worker as it hovered over a beach. He hiked to the woman's location with others and carried the woman to a location where she could be hoisted up to the helicopter at 11:16 p.m.

The crew flew to Lihue and transferred the patient to medical personnel.
