By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:00 p.m. HST, May 12, 2014

Firefighters rescued three hikers Monday morning after they were stranded overnight near the Crouching Lion trail in Kaaawa.

Firefighters got a call about the lost hikers at 6:21 p.m. Sunday but suspended the search at 7:30 p.m. because of weather conditions and low light, Fire Department spokesman David Jenkins said.

Firefighters resumed the search early Monday morning with a helicopter and located the hikers. Three men -- ages 27, 28, and 30 -- were stuck on a ridge near Kualoa, according to HFD. They were brought to a landing zone near Kualoa Ranch at 6:30 a.m.

No injuries were reported.

They've warned people about the "Sacred" falls trail where no hiking is allowed in this mornings news article, and now low and behold, we have these guys getting stuck on the Kualoa ridge...when will they learn, it's not that simple a matter when hikers choose to go against nature and it's mighty terrain. A staunch reminder to others--don't go where you don't belong...because your luck may just run out in the wrong place at the wrong time somewhere out there.

very simple charge for all rescues period, as a tax payer I'm tired of having to flip the bill for these people who make the decision to hike in an area beyond their skill level!

A idea that has been explored many times and yet has not come to fruition. However, all is not lost, it keeps the firemen's skill level honed for rescue work.
