Maui rescue crews airlift injured hiker in Haiku-Pauwela area


Maui County fire rescue personnel used a department helicopter to airlift an injured hiker Monday from a stream bed near the Haiku-Pauwela area, the county reported.

The hiker, a 61-year-old female visitor, fell and injured her left ankle near 260 Honopou Road. Engine 2 personnel responded to the call at 11:34 a.m.

Because of the steep and muddy conditions, the department helicopter and Rescue 10 personnel picked up the woman and flew her to a landing zone just off of Puniawa road, where she was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

 The woman had a possible broken ankle but no life-threatening injuries, the county said.
