2 men rescued from West Maui mountains


Two men attempting to hike from Olowalu to Iao Valley were rescued this morning off the second saddle on the Olowalu side of Iao Valley after a friend notified rescue crews that they were overdue, Maui fire officials said.

The hikers, 25 and 23, did not require medical attention. They were located and transported to a landing zone in Iao Valley State Park around 10:44 a.m.

Officials said the men spent the night on the ridge, and a friend called 911 at around 9 a.m. because they had not returned.
