A local teenage boy fell Monday afternoon from a ledge above the tidal pools at Makapuu.

Emergency Medical Services said the boy, 17, was taken in stable condition to a trauma center.

EMS reported the fall occurred about 2 p.m., and the teenager fell about 6 feet.

The boy was hiking with a group of three other teens on a treacherous, unsanctioned trail when he slipped and fell six feet, fire Capt. Terry Seelig said.

The teens called 911 using a cell phone, and the fire department sent a helicopter and picked up three of the four teenagers, Seelig said.

They landed at Pohonu Point across Sea Life Park, where an ambulance picked up the injured teen
