Firefighters rescue lost hikers in Laie

LAST UPDATED: 07:21 a.m. HST, Nov 25, 2011

Firefighters were helping two women Thursday night after they got lost while hiking a trail behind Brigham Young University.

The women hiked a one-hour walk to a waterfall and called for help shortly after 7 p.m. after losing they way heading back, said Honolulu fire Capt. Terry Seelig.

A fire helicopter was launched to help firefighters spot the women, but the canopy was too dense to see them from the air. Rescue specialists hiked in and were able to find the women. Seelig said they were leading the women out and the group was expected to come out of the forest about 9 p.m. No one was hurt.

These women were reckless and irresponsible and need to pay for their rescue. They put firefighters lives at risk. If you are inexperienced, never go hiking without someone who knows the area. Never hike at night unless you are prepared and familiar with the trail.

Totally agree, those trails back there aren't parks and recreation designated nor state property, must be BYU-Hawaii students but nontheless, they should pay.
