A tourist in her 60s had to be airlifted to safety Monday morning by the Honolulu Fire Department’s helicopter when she injured her leg while hiking on the Kalawahine Trail to Pauoa Flats.

Firefighters were dispatched at 10:15 a.m. when the tourist slipped while hiking with a commercial tour group, Capt. Terry Seeling, Fire Department spokesman said.

Rescuers reached the group at 10:45 a.m. The woman and her husband were airlifted by helicopter to Manoa District Park by 11:10 a.m.

The woman was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries, which Seelig said was "non-life threatening."
