Injured, distressed hikers keep fire department busy

Honolulu firefighters were busy Saturday aiding four distressed hikers in three separate incidents on Oahu.

Two occurred at Koko Head, but about eight hours apart. The department’s helicopter also had to airlift a woman

At 11:18 a.m., the HFD responded to a minor in distress on the Koko Head stairs who had hiked halfway up the trail and got into trouble and had to be rescued by the department’s helicopter. The victim was transferred to EMS at 11:49 a.m.

Later in the day at 6:57 p.m., the department’s helicopter had to airlift a woman who had fallen down seven flights of stairs at Koko Head just before 7 p.m.

Two male hikers fell 30 to 40 feet on Chinaman’s Hat off Windward Oahu just after 2:30 p.m. The two patients were airlifted to a landing zone and transferred to EMS. The remaining two males and female in the same party were reported to have no injuries.
