A 75-year-old woman woman was taken to a Kauai hospital Monday afternoon after sustaining an arm injury at Secret Falls, also known as Uluwehi Falls, in Wailua, according to a Kauai County news release.
Her condition was not available.
The woman from Hobesound, Fla., was part of a guided kayak and hiking tour when the incident occurred.
Four Kapaa firefighters and four rescue specialists hiked in about two miles to Secret Falls, and treated and placed the victim in a litter, the news release said. They wheeled her to Kamokila Village, where other firefighters removed the woman from the litter, placed her on a gurney and then into an ambulance that went to Wilcox Hospital.
