Flags on a Hawaii Kai ridge not connected to air rescue

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Feb 19, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> On Sunday, Jan. 12, at about 8 p.m., a fire-truck and another emergency vehicle with sirens on drove up Ainapo Street to Hahaione Park and were there for a considerable time. Three searchlights scanned most of the park, and then a helicopter flew in and scanned the ridge for quite a while, then made two or three round trips from the ridge to the park before flying off in the direction of Honolulu. The following morning, we saw a Hawaiian flag at approximately where the helicopter made its pickup the night before. I have Googled and searched the Honolulu Star-Advertiser to no avail to find out if there's any connection between the event and the flag. Can you provide an answer?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> It's doubtful that the two are connected.</p>
