Honolulu fire rescue personnel assisted a pair of lost hikers off the Manana Trail in Pearl City Saturday.

The hikers were airlifted off the trail via helicopter. No injuries were reported.

It is reckless and irresponsible to hike unprepared and beyond your capability. It is unacceptable that they endangered the lives of rescue personnel simply because they were tired. These individuals need to be named and held responsible for the cost of this rescue.

Poorly prepared and uninformed. Products of the SOH "Hunter Education Program". The program director, Orlando Oxiles needs to get his act together and bring on some quality instructors. The clueless bunch now conducting the training are doing a lousy job. Many of the instructors have little or no hunting experience. Very sad that folks are actually REQUIRED to complete this sorry program in order to purchase a hunting license. :-(

I know the hikers, who are very experienced. Those of you pontificating should get more exercise and stay away from your computers. We have public services for a reason. And not to save computer trolls.
